Biography

Paul Flynn, PhD, is a researcher in education and a lecturer in teacher education. Within the sphere of second level education and related teacher education he has carried out research on the development of learning communities, digital pedagogical engagement in STEM, literate and numerate boundary crossing, content and language integrated learning in multidisciplinary problem solving, the role of leadership in learning space development, facilitating epistemic agency for social change, history of education, and the development of technology enhanced learning methodologies at the National University Ireland Galway, where he currently works as researcher and lecturer.

Paul is involved in a number of ongoing research projects relating to the development of domain specific numeracy and literacy and the translation of literate and numerate agency across domain boundaries. The model for this research track was initially developed as part of Paul’s PhD thesis and forms the foundation for programmes, led by Paul, such as Breaking the SEAL and INNOVATE21, evident in recent peer reviewed disseminations. Paul has developed a number of sucessful funding proposals, as a Principal Investigator and Co-Principal Investigator, and succeeded in helping to attract over €3m of competitive funding from local, regional, national, European and global funding agencies.

As part of ongoing work, Paul, has developed a wide ranging, multi-disciplinary and global network of collaborators and currently serves on a number of committees and steering groups that inform the development of programmes and policy at a national and international level.
