    About Joss Winn

    I am a Senior Lecturer in the School of Education where I lead the Doctorate in Education (EdD). Prior to joining the University of Lincoln in 2007, I worked in London for Amnesty International and prior to that lived in the USA and Japan. Over the past 20 years, I have taught at all levels of education, from a Kindergarten and public school in Japan to undergraduate and doctoral programmes in the USA and UK, as well as informal adult education.

    My research focuses on co-operative education, workplace democracy and alternative forms of higher education, contributing to a number of sub-disciplines and contemporary research themes in the social sciences. These include the sociology of work and critical labour studies; critical social theory; the sociology of education; the co-operative movement, social movements and activism; and the sociology of technology and information.

    Department Responsibilities

    I am Programme Leader for the Doctorate in Education. I supervise doctoral students and co-ordinate two of the modules. I also contribute to teaching on the School’s PGCE Programmes. I am a member of the School Ethics committee, member of the School Research Committee, and member of the university Research Information Steering Group, which I helped establish. I am the Senior Tutor for the School of Education and also module co-ordinator for the MSc in Social Research (College of Social Science).
