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 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 useful or interesting.

I’m the co-founder of In Beta, a community of academics and clinicians who conduct experiments 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 has also adopted several innovative approaches to academic publication, which we believe will enhance how knowledge is produced and shared.
