Paul has been working in the Learning Technologies Unit (formerly known as the Computer Assisted Learning Unit) since 1993, and has overseen all major upgrades to student computing facilities, including student workstations, servers and staff workstations, plus all associated software and upgrades. Part of his duties include membership of the Computer Support Group which oversees IT management throughout the entire campus.
For many years he was responsible for IT support for students spending the 3rd year of the medical course in the South Australian Riverland, which involved traveling to the Riverland to install, upgrade and maintain student workstations, laptops, networks and printers.
He has also been involved in developing multimedia resources to support the teaching activities of the School since 1993, including video, audio, databases and websites. He was responsible for the initial development of the School of Medicine server and website.
Paul's primary responsibility in the Department of Medical Education originally was the maintenance and development of IT infrastructure for all students studying in the School of Medicine, including the GEMP Medical students, Biotechnology, Environmental Health, Speech Pathology, Nutrition & Dietetics, Palliative Care, Public Health, Nursing and many other Health Science courses.
His role has dramatically changed since 2015, and he now focuses on Teaching and Learning support for academics developing and maintaining their online student resources in FLO.
The Learning Technologies Unit (LTU) used to be based in the School of Medicine, but was elevated to Faculty level when the SoM split into two schools - the School of Medicine and the School of Health Sciences.
In August 2016 the LTU moved offices from FMC to the Sturt Precinct, on level 4, room West 401. The LTU is now part of CILT, Online Teaching and Learning, in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
During 2004 to 2006 Paul studied and completed the Frontline Management course offered by the Staff Development Unit at Flinders University, earning the Certificate IV in Business.
From 1978 until 1982 he was studying for a Bachelor of Science degree at Flinders University of South Australia, majoring in Chemistry, and worked part-time in the Physical Sciences department developing X-Ray image enhancement techniques and software in a research assistant role.
From 1989 until 1993 Paul worked in a small private company (Leading Edge Pty Ltd) continuing development and marketing of Image Analysis solutions, writing software for Windows based PC's.
In 2006 he received a Flinders University School of Medicine Dean's Award (medal & certificate).
In October 2018, he received a 25 Years Service award.
