Joel Mills


I am currently an Associate Professor at BPP and have been Head of Learning and Teaching since 2021. My focus is on enhancing education for all, upskilling staff and developing best practice across the BPP group. Currently I am leading the group on the use and impact of AI in Higher Education. During my career I have been a Lecturer, Programme Leader, Teaching Enhancement Advisor, Manager and Deputy Director in Higher Education across several institutions since 1997. I began teaching in Higher Education in 1997 and when Minecraft was released in 2009, I quickly took it in to my classroom and explored how it could be used in Further and Higher Education for game-based learning.In 2015 I won the award of Learning Technologist of the year for my work in Minecraft in Higher Education and I have developed award winning projects in Chemistry, History, Archaeology and Business Studies. I have also won awards for Most Innovative Teacher, and have been recognised through the Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert programme #MIEE.You can follow me on Twitter via @iLearningUK
