Projects per year
Dr Ewan Ingleby has been the postgraduate research tutor for the school of social sciences, humanities, and law since 2013. Ewan is particularly interested in using frameworks and concepts that derive from philosophy and ethnography (for example, new literacy studies). Ewan was an elected member of the international committee of IPDA (the International Professional Development Association) from 2012-2019 and he has worked on funded research by the Higher Education Academy and Innovate UK. Ewan has published research articles in peer-reviewed education journals, including Studies In Higher Education; Teaching In Higher Education; and Professional Development in Education and he has participated in national and international education conferences. Ewan is a member of the editorial board for The Journal of Further and Higher Education; Research In Post Compulsory Education; and Practice: Contemporary Issues in Practitioner Education. Ewan has also published a number of books in education. Ewan has supervised six students to research degree completion (five doctoral students as director of studies and one MPhil student in education as second supervisor). Ewan's PhD in education completers have applied visual methods in exploring the perceptions of new vocational degrees in higher education and considered the implications of the marketisation of higher education. Ewan's last Education Doctorate completer undertook a research thesis on applying technology to pedagogy in higher education.
