I recently completed the ADSHE Level 5 course on supporting learners in FE/HE with Dyslexia/SpLDs and have been working more and more in this area over the last few years. So I thought I would just collect the essays I wrote for this course, as well as a few other publications here.
This is something that pops up from time to time, sometimes loudly, sometimes subtly or probably much more often by simple omission.Continue reading “Why is I.T in the Creative Industries?”
You should read Philip K Dick in 2020 because Philip K Dick invented Animal Crossing in 1965.Continue reading “Why you should read Philip K Dick in 2020”
What is knowledge management? Well, it’s like information management, if that helps. No?
So what is information management? Well, really it all starts with quality management. (Get to the point!)
Polls! (huh) What are they good for? Hopefully something, say it again.
This is something that’s come up a number of times in talks around audiences – how do we ask the people who AREN’T attending? How do we ask people from outside of city X what they think about city X? Would it be interesting to see what they thought before and after some big event? And so on.

For the last year or so I have participated in the RSA Cultural Evidence champions network. I was particularly interested in joining off the back of work I had done evaluating a theatre in libraries project that you can read more about here if you like. (or here). If you aren’t particularly interested in education, I think the broader arguments about evaluation in the cultural sector will still be of interest. What? You don’t like evaluation either? I am shocked! Well, not that shocked.
Festivals and interesting contradictions go hand in hand, in fact, this may be critical to their fundamental appeal. One of their most compelling contradictions, for me, has been the endless dilemma between their undeniable environmental impact and the effect of the ‘green-tinted glasses’ through which it often seems tempting to view them.
Survey-based research methods are nothing particularly new to the event and festival sector; and in a forthcoming journal article (which is now out: Event Management), myself and co-author James Bostock (Derby University) carry out an in depth analysis of past, current and future trends.
Yeah, we may use survey methods a lot in this field, but that doesn’t mean we’re somehow exceptionally good at it or that all the different variations of surveys can just all be lumped together and considered as ‘basically the same thing’. As a proportion, we’re doing ‘less’ surveys, but as the literature expands, there is still more and more research using surveys.
