Mike is a lecturer at Edinburgh College and the Teaching Staff member of the Board. He has been a lecturer in Social Sciences, based at Granton, for 16 years.
Mike is the Convenor of Edinburgh College’s EIS-FELA Branch, a position he has held since the three legacy colleges merged in 2012.
Mike describes himself as a passionate advocate of the intrinsic merits of education and believes that, too often, education is seen as an instrument for personal advancement only. Mike believes that, in reality, a student’s learning experience can both liberate them as an individual and contribute to social progress more broadly.
In his spare time, Mike enjoys music, books and football, and lives with his partner Sophie and their cat Ziggy.
