About my work

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.

You can view my peer-reviewed publications, and my conference presentations.

  1. Enjoyed your article on Robinson’s transnationals. Helped clarify some important distinctions he’s making between state and global economies. Am currently teaching a colloquium on War and Peace and will definitely come back to your site for more articles. Keep up the good work. – Peter
