Stewart Mark Godwin
Polytechnic West
Perth, Australia

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. In 2008, Stewart moved to the Tunbridge Wells High School as head of computing and taught across a range of computer subject areas.

By 2009, Stewart had moved back to Perth and accepted a permanent lecturing position in the vocational training sector where he has developed curricula for networking and programming qualifications across multiple campuses. Throughout his educational career, Stewart has been a strong advocate for the delivery of multi-discipline computer-based courses and continues to design and develop online materials for vocational qualifications.

In addition to the reviews written for Computing Reviews, Stewart is also a reviewer for pre-published academic articles in the higher education journal at Polytechnic West. Both of these activities complement his commitment to higher education and computer science.
