Stewart Godwin is an information technology educator with a primary interest in computer programming languages. His doctorate in education reflects a commitment to the development of computer science curricula and hybrid learning environments for professional educators.

After a successful career in the private sector, Stewart graduated with a Bachelor in Computer Science from Edith Cowan University in 1997, and accepted a lecturing position with South East Metropolitan College. He moved to a lecturing position with the Higher Colleges of Technology in 2001 at the Al Ain Men’s College. During his stay in the United Arab Emirates, he completed a Master’s of Education and then commenced doctoral studies. Returning to Australia in 2005, Stewart began teaching at the International School of Western Australia and completed his doctoral studies in 2007.
