About Adam Procter

"Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting."
— Ivan Illich
I am keen on open education, open practice and co-ops. You can keep up to date with the research at my blog, listen to my microcasts at and microblog ramblings at or read some more formalized writing at I have a number of other outlets including an open codebase on a newsletter and youtube channel

My research is currently being undertaken as a WebScience PhD (which costs around £100 / $140 per month) and connected services (my server costs work out to be around £60 / $85 per month) The PhD will result in me becoming Doctor Procter but this is not about me climbing academia, I want to make and share work and thinking that will inspire and encourage conversation and innovation around design thinking, digital technology, edutech, the web and humanity centered design practices. This Pateron page is a way to enable you to contribution towards my work in this regard. 

Please note that all my material is always freely available, creative commons and GNU Affero General Public Licensed, this is your way to show your appreciation, and boost my confidence to keep on sharing.

Select a Jar (or custom pledge any amount) you wish to contribute to each month and I’ll send you a personal thank you, mention you in my microcast that week and my newsletter that quarter, linking to your work and of course thanking you for your support.

My research field is design education and digital education technology. I am investigating and interrogating how digital tools in design education could be re-imagined and better support the experiential studio based learning that I foster as an educator specifically the design thinking research-led programme I currently run at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton in Games Design & Art (BA Hons).

The PhD itself will test, evaluate and create a number of artifacts including digital prototypes and a delightful design manifesto to support future ethical design practice and tool building that embrace and enhance studio culture. My practice revolves around spatial hypertext, hypermedia, humanity centered design processes and the concept of communities of practice.

Thank you for your support.

This will cover all my PhD costs and so as a thank you I will credit you in my doctoral thesis and give you all a special mention at future Viva's and public events connected to my PhD. Unless of course you don't want me to mention you and in that case double thanks for being an anonymous contributor.
