The Teaching and Learning Exchange are delighted to announce that we have appointed Dr Gurnam Singh as a Visiting Fellow. Dr Singh is Principal Lecturer in Social Work at Coventry University and Visiting Professor of Social Work at the University of Chester, and brings invaluable expertise and experience to our work at UAL. He will be the advisor/critical friend for the UAL Attainment Project: Learning for All.
Dr Singh describes himself as an academic activist, and states:
‘what inspires me both in my teaching and research is the desire to transform individuals and society. I always seek to deploy a critical sociological imagination in my work as well as espousing democratic, humanitarian and universal principles. My belief is that committed scholarship has the potential to enable human societies to respond to the challenge of all kinds of inequalities, at the local, national or global level.’
We are so pleased that Dr Singh will be contributing to our work on diversity, equality and attainment.
