About

My name is Michael Rowe and I’m an Associate Professor in the Department of Physiotherapy at the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa. This site is where I share some of the things that I’m interested in, most of which is at the intersection of healthcare, education and technology. I’m an NRF-rated researcher, which basically means that a small group of my peers has evaluated my work and decided that I may one day do something interesting.

I’m also the co-founder of In Beta, a community of academics and clinicians with an interest in physiotherapy education and who aim to take a critical position with respect to improving professional development in the discipline. I’m also the Editor and founder of OpenPhysio, an open-access journal with an emphasis on physiotherapy education. OpenPhysio is not only a new journal for academic publication but is an attempt to change the way in which knowledge is produced and shared.
