Phil has taught at Massey University since 1988, teaching at both postgraduate and undergraduate level and both internally and extramurally. Phil's background is in Training and Development, though his interests have broadened to embrace the field of Organisational Learning, and the impact of culture on learning and change. He has a particular interest in leadership, change and organisational learning in the field of education. Research has included leadership in 'collectivist' cultures such as Indonesia, and the professional practices of trainers working in the domain of Emotional Intelligence.
PhD supervisions include:
Peter Blyde: Models of leadership in New Zealand
Dodi Irawanto: Paternalistic Leadership in Indonesia
Lesley Gill: Practices of Emotional Intelligence training practitioners
Sajid Khan: Mental models of innovative educators
Recently, Phil has been working on the development of a software-based system for training administration, known as Skill Tracker. This product has been commercialised by Massey University and its initial application has been in the field of Veterinary Science. The system incorporates principles of learning and aims to both (1) enhance the experience of learners by allowing them to track their progress as they acquire skills, and (2) provide decision-makers with information that allows them to manage training systems.
Dr Phil Ramsey works in the areas of HRD and Organisational Learning. He is the creator of the Training Administration tool Skill Tracker and is involved in research to do with its application. Phil has conducted and supervised research in application of organisational learning and systems thinking concepts to emotional intelligence, innovation in education and development of leadership models and practices for varying cultural contexts.
