About Michael Klingenberg
Michael Klingenberg is a senior lecturer nursing in the School of Health & Community Studies at Leeds Beckett University. He is admissions tutor for adult nursing and leads a number of modules which promote critical engagement with nursing practice and policy.
Michael has trained as a nurse in Germany and qualified in 1997. He worked in medical education from 2004 to 2014, when he joined Leeds Beckett University as senior lecturer. Michael has researched interprofessional learning as well as issues of mistreatment and humiliation in education. He also has conducted studies discursively analysing hegemonic concepts such as patient-centredness.
Michael currently teaches on both undergraduate and postgraduate nursing courses on modules relating to academic and professional skills and research methodology.
Michael has completed a doctorate ethnographically researching selection in nursing. His research is concerned with practice, specifically the enactment of protocols in local settings. This research is meant to reignite a debate about the claims made in work psychology literature on the predominance of method. Aside from this Michael is interested in how service users are performed in relation to health care and health care education.
