I work at De Montfort University in Leicester, UK, where I am the Co-Director of our Institute for Education Futures. This built on our Centre for Pedagogic Research, which is a self-critical scholarly community that aims to support the Scholarly DMU Educator. Between 2002-16 I was Head of Enhancing Learning through Technology at DMU.
I am also a Higher Education Academy National Teaching Fellow (awarded in 2009), and a Professor of Education and Technology (awarded in 2013 after being a Reader for three years). I am a Research Associate in the Centre for Computing and Social Responsibility at DMU.
I have PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes Practitioner status. I have worked extensively on research projects and with MA/PhD research students.
My research interests include:
- the idea of the University and radical alternatives to it;
- the place of co-operative practice and mass intellectuality in overcoming disruption in higher education;
- the University and the Triple Crunch (of socio-environmental crisis, energy availability, and the secular crisis of capitalism);
- technology and critical social theory.
