Mr Emile Goddard

Emile’s academic journey began in the medieval city of Canterbury, UK., where he gained an Honours in Radio, Film and Television Studies. Walking to class each day through Canterbury Cathedral with a history going back 1600 years was an amazing experience both historically and aesthetically. Employment followed as an audio-visual technician then academic life took a turn when Emile undertook CELTA studies to become an ESL teacher. A stint of travelling led to a dramatic life change and Emile relocated to Australia and expanded his field of teaching to include Media Studies and Film History.

A change of pace from inner-city Newtown to the Northern Rivers resulted in employment at SCU. Initially as an ESL teacher in the English Language Centre and then as a tutor and UA for SCU College. With a proven record of incorporating media-rich interactive content into teaching it was only natural for this to be supported through further academic studies so Emile gained a Masters in eLearning at UNE. This coincided with the introduction of the SC Model and expansion of the CTL team where Emile now resides as an Educational Designer.

Aside from a keen interest in travel, visual communication and educational design, Emile is always up for a chat about new teaching technologies but is easily side tracked with talk about alternative music. If Slint, Mogwai or 4AD mean anything to you, then you are talking his language.
