Dr Juup Stelma

Lecturer in TESOL; Programme Director MA TESOL

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 developing understanding of intentionality draws on folk-psychological notions of being purposeful (see Daniel Dennett's Intentional Stance) as well as the pragmatic philosophy of John Searle (see his Intentionality: an essay in the philosophy of mind).
