Research, Knowledge Exchange and the Military Sector - Ken had the opportunity to present and be part of a panel discussion in a fascinating inter-disciplinary workshop on research, knowledge exchange and the military sector held in the Byre theatre.

Ken presented two research studies, both of which have now been […]

Social identification and normative conflict: When student and educator learning norms […]
