Gavin has worked in education for the past 25 years and gives seminars, in-service workshops and teacher training courses for practising language teachers all over the world. He is also involved in materials development, for both EFL course books and online learning.  Until the end of 2003 he held two posts: the first as Head of the New Technologies Department at International House Barcelona and the second as Lead Developer for the online training centre Net Languages. In 2003 he set up The Consultants-E with Nicky Hockly.

He is a past coordinator of the IATEFL Learning Technologies Special Interest Group and also past editor of the SIG newsletter. In 2007 he was elected Honorary Secretary of IATEFL, and in 2011 he became the first Chair of the Electronic Committee (ElCom). Since stepping down from IATEFL in the spring of 2013, he has been selected as a trustee for the International House Trust in London

Publications include: "The Internet & The Language Classroom" (CUP 2000, 2007), "How to Teach English with Technology" (Longman 2007, with Nicky Hockly - winner of the International House Ben Warren Award 2008), "Digital Literacies" (Routledge 2013, with Nicky Hockly and Dr. Mark Pegrum) and "Going Mobile" (Delta Publishing 2014, with Nicky Hockly)  and he has also written a chapter for a book on Higher and Further Education in Second Life (with Howard Ramsay).

He is a well-known author of methodology books on the application of technology in language teaching(see Publications in the Portfolio section of this site for more),

When not working on all that, he used to look after three islands in Second Life and spend time building and scripting for the education community - the Consultants-E Second Life project EduCation@EduNation was shortlisted for a 2009 British Council ELTON award. TCE have since left Second Life and are concentrating on the exciting, expanding sphere of mobile and handheld learning and training.

Gavin lives in Wales, where the company is also based.
