I am Associate Professor in the Program in Adult Education and Community Development in the Department of Leadership, Higher and Adult Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT). I am also a co-founder and Director of the Centre for Learning, Social Economy & Work (CLSEW) and Director of the Collaborative Specialization in Workplace Learning and Social Change. My research, teaching, and activist interests are in workplace and organizational learning and social change; the sociology of work; social and solidarity economy initiatives; critical community development; the worldwide cooperative movement, with a focus on worker cooperatives; worker- and community-recuperated enterprises (formerly capitalist firms or public-sector interests that are converted to workers' or community self-management); critical theory; and the philosophy of technology.
