It is a real pleasure to welcome you to my web site – a place for learning, sharing and creating new knowledge. Here you will read about ideas, meet people, and join in their conversations.
You will find books, papers and other resources that you can use in your own work. You can share your ideas with others, too, so that you can move the conversations on and on. Together we can create new conversations that have the potential to influence learning worldwide.
I am an independent researcher, and work with practitioners wherever the opportunity arises. I began my professional life as a teacher, and am still a teacher, though my workplaces come in a range of forms.
I work with people in townships and universities, schools and corporations, across continents. I also hold institutional positions on a part-time basis. I am Professor of Educational Research at York St John University, UK: and I hold Visiting Professorships at the University of Limerick, Ireland; the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa; and the Ningxia Teachers’ University, People’s Republic of China.
I hope your visit will enable you to say that you can do whatever is of value to you, and find ways also of sharing your work as your contribution to creating a better world for us all.

Here is a word about some of the pictures you see in the headline banner. They are all photos of me in places where I have worked, or with people with whom I have worked. You can see a picture in a lecture theatre at the University of Pretoria; with the teachers in Khayelitsha who graduated with their masters degrees; with former President of Ireland Mary Robinson; with Chris Glavey and Ray O'Neill who graduated with their PhDs from the University of Glamorgan; a picture outside David Livingstone's church in South Africa (he helped to re-build it); a special picture of a memorial to the Zulu warriors who fell at the battle of Isandlwana; a picture of Down Patrick Head in County Mayo, which holds a special place in my work and in my heart (the picture of me on this page is also from there); another picture of Lake Tahoe, where I visited after the AERA conference in San Diego; a group of huts from an African village; a rooftop scene of Qatar from my hotel window, including the most beautiful mosque. More pictures will appear over time.
