    About Terence Karran

    I’m a Senior Academic in the School of Education, where I teach on the PhD (Prof.) programme and supervise   PhD students.  After graduating I worked briefly at the UK headquarters of Kodak, the photographic company. Returning to academia, I worked as Research Assistant at Lancaster University, before going to Manchester to study for a PhD. After completing the PhD in three years, I worked as a Research Fellow and Senior Research Fellow at the universities of Dundee and Strathclyde before taking up a lecturing post at Leeds Metropolitan University. As a result of work on a feasibility study for the Finnish Virtual University, Oulu University made me a Docent Professor in Educational Technology in 2006. From 2005-07, I worked as a Visiting Professor at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara in Mexico, where I was Director of the UAG’s Distance Learning Centre (DLC) and also the Mexican National Co-Ordinator of the World Bank Institute’s Global Development Learning Network for Latin America and the Caribbean (GDLN LAC).
