About Michael J. Maguire

I have been reading and writing, making and breaking, for a long time and remain wise enough to know that I am still learning. I have a history of writing for various media, creating new forms, new works and new forms of experimental work both in the private sector and in the public domain.

Learning through traditional methods, personal reading, community participation, praxis… and ‘others’..

I spent a number of years teaching in various educational and academic institutions in Ireland, from ‘difficult’ primary school kids, to second level transition year classrooms, to third level and Post graduate MSc and MBA cohorts. Numerous supervisions. I was also fortunate to teach at 4th level ( Professionalization of your PhD). As always it is my wonderful students who are the shining stars. As GBS said, at some points, the only way to learn is to teach.

Various types of teaching from large scale auditorium style lecturing to technical workshops with 40 students
I had the pleasure and privilege of delivering the first keynote of the 2019 ELO conference

Others have written about my previous engagements with computer games development and my practice and evangelization of digital and electronic literature here in Ireland..

My professional profile is available on LinkedIn

I have been interviewed many times on Radio and in various Podcasts like this one.
