Areas of Teaching

Sociology of Recreation and Sport


PhD, BSL (First Class Hons)


 Sue joined EIT in 2014 as a senior lecturer in the recreation and sport environment, having come from a university background. Her teaching and research focuses specifically on the socio-cultural and psycho-social aspects of sport and recreation. As a sociologist, Sue’s academic interests revolve around national and cultural identity, gender, race, ethnicity, media communication and power relations.

Sue is currently involved in collaborative Maori-based research with PATU Aotearoa. Her interest in PATU focuses on the lived experiences of whanau using this Urban Marae and the value that a holistic approach to health and wellbeing has in empowering people. Prior to moving into academia Sue worked in the NZ not-for-profit sector and the international corporate business environment in Africa.

Her current role in the Bachelor of Recreation and Sport degree extends across the undergraduate programme in courses that examine the social aspects of sport and recreation, teaching the fundamental requirements of academic writing and research and working with students in practicum placements in the community. She is also involved in supporting students enrolled in the Masterate programme.
