I strongly believe that the traditional academic ethos, which privileges certain forms of writing, speaking and behaviour, is highly restrictive. Some rules of conduct are definitely beneficial for the community - after all, we do need to distinguish sound education and research from rubbish. However, the increasingly prevalent publish-or-perish spirit - coupled with highly elitist distinctions between 'good' and 'bad' schools and publishers, 'academic' and 'non-academic' activities, is often directly opposed to the real nature of education and scientific discovery.

Since late 1990s I have participated, in various capacities, in many EU and non-EU projects. I regularly publish popular science and talk about the relationships between technologies and the society in front of diverse audiences. I relax from education and technologies through engagement in programme and organisation of Scena Amadeo.

My non-academic engagement is dialectically intertwined with its academic counterpart - they mutually inform each other, and aim towards reconciliation at the intersection between educational theory, practice and research. A lot of my public engagement is conducted in Croatian language, because I believe that maintaining linguistic diversity through nourishing national languages is the vital counter-hegemonic practice in the age of globalization.
