Jennifer Jomafuvwe Agbaire

Jennifer Agbaire is a Lecturer in Education at the Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies at The Open University. She currently Chairs the Open University’s Masters in Education Stage 2 Inclusive Practice module and is the Deputy Chair of the dissertation module. She also co-leads Early Career Researcher (ECR) development at the OU’s Centre for the Study of Global Development (CSGD).  Her teaching, research, impact and knowledge exchange work centre issues of social inequalities, educational inclusion, equity and social justice – her work particularly stem from her interest in marginalised identities. Jennifer’s interest and work also extends to community-centred creative, co-creative and innovative research approaches as well as the ethics and inclusivity of research and professional practices.  She is involved in interdisciplinary and multi-partnership projects in these areas, with experience that spans access, policy, leadership, teaching and teacher education across all levels of education.
