Teaching

Since 2019 Keith has taught into both Visual Arts Studio practice streams and transdisciplinary subjects within the new 'Situated Creative Practices' initiative which brings together teams of students onto real world creatively-led projects. In 2019 he began teaching a course called 'Re-imagining Art in a Time of Climate Change' in collaboration with ecological scientists from the Institute for Future Environments and Samford Ecological Research Station. This course will be featured as an exemplar in 2022/3 as part of the QUT's Education for Sustainability Project which is focused on embedding sustainability across the entire the QUT curriculum.

In 2022 he received the award of AFHEA (Indigenous) in recognition of his work in bringing indigenous perspectives and an ecological world view to direct the undergraduate corse he coordinates - Spatial Art (site specific installation). Prior to his 12 years as a research intensive staff member he  completed over seven years of sessional teaching - primarily in the areas of interactive and moving image conception and production. Throughout his time at QUT he has been a regular guest lecture, presenter and speaker, and also a supervisor of numerous doctoral and Masters candidates.
