Educator and Researcher Critical Digital Pedagogy in Tampere, Finland

Visit my company website

I am an educator, learner, speaker and researcher, committed to helping build a future where every person has free and open access to knowledge and is at liberty to learn.

I position myself within Critical Pedagogy and my research interests include critical digital pedagogy, the impact of digitalization on education and the social impact of datafication. I am also interested in the use of humour as part of a pedagogy of care.

I am the creator and co-designer of an MBA in Educational Leadership and a member of the Critical Applied Research of Digitalization in Education (CARDE) and the Humour Affordances in Digital Learning Environments (HAnDLE) research groups.

I believe that we should endeavour to create a world of greater equity, where wealth is not measured by consumption but instead by the sum of the individual value that each person brings to the world, their unique talents and creativity.

I think the purpose of education should be empowerment and emancipation and I believe in a system of education that allows learners to develop as unique individuals, fostering creativity, critical thinking, literacy, problem solving and collaboration. A system of education in an authentic context, that values the essential contribution of professional educators.

If you share some of these visions and ideas, then connect with me and lets work together, we have a lot to do!
