Brian Jennings

Brian JenningsI have had a long career as an educator that has involved me in a lot of varied and interesting experiences. I began my career in 1980 as a Teacher of Religious Education in the City of Birmingham. Later, while studying for my M.Phil. I worked all over the West Midlands as a Relief Teacher supporting both primary and secondary schools. I have served as lecturer at Ghana Christian University College since 1989. Besides my specialist discipline of Ethics, I also teach courses in Philosophy, the Study of Religions, and Research Methods and Practice. From 2007 I have also been responsible for quality management in my institution.

My current interests include facilitating experiential learning in the subjects I teach through narrative pedagogy, reflective learning, and action research. I am actively involved in projects that emphasise strengths based approaches to enhancing quality in organisations and in professional development.

I hold a BA (Hons) Philosophy (University of Nottingham), P.G.C.E in Secondary Education (University of Nottingham), MPhil. in Religious Studies (Open University), PhD in Theology (University of Birmingham) and an MA in Education (University of Derby). I am Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK) a Chartered Quality Professional of the Chartered Quality Institute (UK), and a Full Member of the Association for Solution Focus in Organisations (UK). I also serve as an Academic Auditor for the National Accreditation Board (Ghana) and a Consulting Tutor with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (UK).

My PhD Thesis was published in 2010 as Leading Virtue: A Model for the Contextualisation of Christian Ethics. A Study of the Interaction and Synthesis of Methodist and Fante Moral Traditions Frankfurt am Main: Peter Lang.
