"Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting."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.

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 studio culture. My practice revolves around spatial hypertext, humanity centered design processes and the concept of communities of practice.
I am keen on open education, open practice and co-ops. You can keep up to date with the research at my blog researchnot.es, listen to my microcasts at fragmentum.adamprocter.co.uk and microblog ramblings at discursive.adamprocter.co.uk read some more formalized writing at dlls.adamprocter.co.uk. I have a number of other outlets including an open codebase on gitlab.adamprocter.co.uk a newsletter periodical.adamprocter.co.uk and youtube channel video.adamprocter.co.uk.
Thank you for your support.
