Dr Lucian Tipi

Head of Teaching and Learning Enhancement, College of Business, Technology and Engineering


Summary

I have a pedigree of academic leadership in a wide range of roles undertaken at Sheffield Hallam University and with International partners.  My research interests are focused on the areas of Information Systems in Business, Project Management and Education.  I have published in these areas through case studies, books and book chapters, journal and conference papers. My teaching leadership extends to the UK and internationally. I have been awarded a Teaching Excellence prize that recognises my contributions to teaching and learning.  My teaching practice and impact have been recognised by Advance HE (formerly Higher Education Academy) and I am now a Senior Fellow.  Cybercrime is my 'flagship' teaching area and I take an applied approach to this by using current news and practical examples.  I have taught in this area internationally (Malaysia, Finland, Hong Kong, China, Botswana).  I appear on various media outlets and I have regular contributions in areas of business-related interests (e.g. Cybercrime, Brexit).
