Judith Kleine Staarman



Judith Kleine Staarman is a senior lecturer in the Graduate School of Education at the University of Exeter, UK and director of Thinking Schools @Exeter (TS@Exeter). TS@Exeter represents the long-standing engagement with research on teaching for thinking and creativity at the University of Exeter. We offer schools in the UK and internationally a route to accreditation through the Exeter Thinking School Award or the Exeter Advanced Thinking School Award. TS@Exeter collaborates with practitioner networks around the world, including networks of teachers and schools, and accredited schools become partner schools in one of the Graduate School of Education’s partnership networks.

Ever since her PhD research at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, Judith has been interested in the processes by which people learn, think and create together through collaboration and dialogue; both with and without interactive technologies. She has a wider interest in the role of technology for teaching and learning, in particular in relation to education futures and has published extensively on collaborative learning, teacher-student dialogue and interaction through and around educational technology. She currently leads a Master’s programme at the University of Exeter in Technology, Creativity and Thinking, which is strongly grounded in the latest research around Teaching Thinking, Dialogue and Education Futures.
