Raoul Adam

Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Education
James Cook University

Raoul has over twenty years of experience in education. He has worked as a senior secondary school teacher and senior university lecturer in educational philosophy and psychology. His research concerns education for 'wicked problems' and the interaction between different ways of knowing and being (i.e. onto-epistemology). His theory of bi-relational development (BirD) maps complex social problems (e.g. fundamentalism) in relation to salient dyads (e.g. conservative/liberal, spirit/matter).
