I am the Co-Director of our Institute for Education Futures. 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.
My research interests include:
- The idea of the University and radical alternatives to it
- The University and the secular crisis of capitalism
- Technology, pedagogy and critical social theory
- Co-operative education and the place of co-operative practice in overcoming disruption in higher education, including peak oil and the impact of technology on climate change and energy sufficiency
- Mass intellectuality
