Professor Joan Lockyer
The Institute conveys a warm welcome to our new Vice President Education and Practitioner Learning who has been elected to the ISBE Executive Board, Professor Joan Lockyer. Many thanks to outgoing Vice President, Dr Breda O’Dwyer for all her commitment and hard work in the role.
Joan will have direct responsibility for the Institute’s links with the education environment and use her vast expertise in the education and practitioner learning arenas to jointly represent and inform the Institute’s membership in all matters of small business and entrepreneurship education.
Professor Joan Lockyer said “I am delighted and excited to have been elected as Vice President Education and Practitioner Learning. Whether a blessing or a curse, it’s true to say that we are living in interesting times. My aim as VP is to help us to navigate the challenges, by exploiting the opportunities, presented by the current and future higher education landscape. We will be better equipped if we do that together, in the belief that many heads are better than one. I am really looking forward to working with colleagues in ISBE and beyond to share best practice and current research as we navigate the new normal.”
Professor Andy Henley, President of ISBE, said “I am delighted that the Board of Trustees of ISBE has elected Professor Joan Lockyer as our next Vice-President for Education and Practitioner Learning. Joan brings a wealth of experience as an entrepreneurship educator and researcher on the transformative impact of enterprise education and I look forward to working with Joan to further enhance the support that ISBE provides to those researching and engaging with professionals on entrepreneurship education and learning. I would also like to add my thanks to Dr Breda O’Dwyer for her commitment to the work and her contribution to the ISBE board over the past two years.”
