    Personal profile


    Dr Luca Morini is Assistant Professor at the Centre for Global Learning (GLEA) of Coventry University. He holds a Master's Degree in Psychology and a Doctorate in Education and Communication, obtained researching into the social, cultural and pedagogical dynamics which occur in Do-It-Yourself amateur game design communities.

    He started his career in Coventry working on research projects pertaining game- and play-based learning and cultures, among which BEACONING and Crowds4Roads H2020 Projects, looking into ways to sustainably and ethically implement seamless game-based learning on a European Union scale, and GameChangers and CreativeCulture, trying to embed game design thinking and practices in everyday pedagogies.

    More recently, he has focused on critical aspects of internationalisation and intercultural engagement, particularly on the need to decolonise and ecologise higher education. To do this he has drawn on participatory, narrative and co-creative methodologies, often again with a playful twist.

    He is also Deputy Lead for GLEA's postgraduate programmes, promoting a flexible, reflective and philosophically informed approach to doctoral education.

    His main areas of interest are co-creation (particularly through playful means), philosophy of research, critical pedagogy, doctoral education and systems thinking. He has experience in qualitative research methodologies, particularly in participatory research and ethnography, seamlessly transversing online and offline spaces.

    Luca has a record of publications, including peer reviewed journals, conference papers and book chapters, which touch on the diverse themes of digital and critical pedagogy, decolonisation, game design, human ecology, and research methodology.
