Everyone dreads a long PowerPoint presentation; whether you're giving it or having to sit through it, they can be dull, lifeless, and repetitive, so much so that most people now use the phrase 'Death By PowerPoint,' to describe how it feels.

I'm Watch Commander Doctor David Murphy, Dave to my friends! I currently lead an operational fire station team at a busy central location in one of the largest fire brigades in the world. I am a graduate of the first ever firefighter accelerated promotion project.
As well as leading at incidents I am also responsible for the day-to-day training of my team. That work combines with my teaching and academic background to fuel my passion: online instructional design. I work independently to develop online learning projects as well as being a founder member of the School for the Self, and I am also a member of the elearning guild.
In previous roles I have taught political philosophy at undergraduate level, taught teaching methodology to university lecturers, been an associate editor of an academic journal, been Team Leader on a European Union assistance mission to the Republic of Uzbekistan, been an emergency call taker for a UK police force... oh and I've cleaned toilets for a living too!
I hope that this varied life experience gives me some insight not just into the subjects I teach but into how to teach them effectively.
I'm excited to be getting to know new students here, and I look forward to meeting you through my courses and our discussions.
