About Cohen

Mx Cohen

With his thesis, titled ‘READMOLE’ (Risk-conscious Ethnographic Approach in Digital Mobile Outdoor Learning Education), Cohen explores his key research interests, which are students’ non-participation in their own learning, the development of curricula that link formal and informal learning and so contribute to wider social issues around community cohesion and the development of enquiry-based approaches to learning that supports and develops independent learning skills and dispositions.

At the heart of his project is the question of what pedagogic value is added by employing a digital ethnographic pedagogy as opposed to more traditional modes of teaching.
