I am module leader for three core modules on the Business and Management Degree programme: Business in Society (level 4); Ethics in Business (level 5) and Critical Enquiry Research Project (level 6). The focus of these modules reflect my research interests in ideas of responsibility in business education and my background in socio-legal studies.
I am also Subject Coordinator for the International Business Management Degree in Business School, assisting students on the programme, supporting the administration of the programme and contributing to programme development, drawing on my background in pedagogic research with the Aske Cluster for Management and Entrepreneurial Education.
Over the last 5 years I have been developing a research focus which takes a critical approach to Higher Education as a social practice. Two successful funding bids used Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME) and ideas of 'global citizenship' as prisms through which to explore pedagogic practices based on Habermasian ideas of communicative action. More recently my research has considered the implications of PRME in reinforcing particular understandings of the purpose of management education and this analysis will form the basis for further research on the effects of western perspectives in management education.
