Michael Singh is a Professor of Education, Centre for Educational Research, University of Western Sydney, Australia, and leader of the “Argumentative Chinese Students” Research Cooperative. He is currently studying leadership in the reform of the senior phase of learning (Years 10, 11 and 12); investigating cultural globalisation through teacher movements into and out of multicultural Australia, and undertaking an inquiry into the globalisation of the Bologna Process through its affects on Australian teacher education.
He has recently studied the multi-level, large-scale education and training reforms to Years 10–12; undertook a meta-analysis of research into quality teaching and school leadership; and explored the educational motivation and engagement of rural, remote, low SES and Indigenous boys. His book, Globalizing Education (edited with M. Apple and J. Kenway) examines the complexities of local/global connectedness evident in policies and pedagogies governing education.
In Appropriating English (with P. Kell and A. Pandian) he studied innovations in the local/global business of English language teaching. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
