Keri Facer is Professor of Educational and Social Futures at the University of Bristol. Her academic work is broadly concerned with understanding (and sometimes creating) relationships between universities, schools, and wider society. A particular concern is the understanding of the implications of potential future economic, environmental, and technological change for the relationship between schools and communities, which is the subject of her 2011 book Learning Futures: Education, Technology and Social Change. Furthermore, Facer has been involved as an editorial board member for Futures, Journal of Media and Technology and the Journal of Sociology of Education; and since 2013, she has been Leadership Fellow for the RCUK Connected Communities Programme.
