Dr Juup Stelma

My main research interest is the development of an ecological perspective on teaching and learning, and with a particular focus on the analytical affordances of the construct of 'intentionality'. My ecological thinking draws on James Gibson, as well as later writers from the 'Connecticut school' of ecological psychology.

My research falls mostly under the broad theme of 'Humeanism', which I take to be the view that there is no such thing as natural necessity (or, if there is, it is a fairly superficial rather than a fundamental feature of reality).

Manchester Leadership Programme

The Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) is unique to the University of Manchester and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their university experience, while giving something back to the wider community.

MLP students learn about the challenges facing society in the 21st century, and the leadership approaches needed to address them, both in theory and in real-world practice. The programme also helps students to develop the skills and experiences that graduate employers seek.
