Professor Rupert Wegerif
Professor of Education (2000), University of Cambridge
With Sara Hennessey I coordinate the Cambridge Education Dialogue Research Group or CEDiR. Our aim is to research and develop a dialogic approach to education. We are developing a global research community with that shared aim.
All my projects and teaching are united by a focus on educational dialogue and on a dialogic theory of education. I also have a particular interest in the Internet and new media as vehicles for dialogic education.
I often write on the theory of dialogic education as a new approach within educational psychology. While I love theory, for me theory is inseparable from practice and from the aim of changing things for the better.
I hold the 'Professor of Education (2000)' endowed chair at Cambridge. I am joint coordinator of the EARLI SIG on ‘educational theory‘ (EARLI SIG 25).
