Lee Humber currently (2013) has a number of teaching roles. For Oxford Brookes University, he is employed teaching MSc Health Studies to students in Hong Kong; he is a visiting lecturer at Hertfordshire University teaching on the Learning Disability Nursing course there; he teaches Health and Social Care modules at Swindon University and provides training for staff and volunteers at the award-winning charity Restore, which provides support services for people recovering from mental health problems in Oxfordshire.
In 2012-2013 he had several papers published. These have included papers on learning disabilities and employment and wider issues in Disability and Society, Learning Disability Today and the E-Journal, InTouch. His latest paper was an evaluative research paper written for MIND which will be available in the latter half of 2013.
He is exploring several research project options. He is part of the History Group funding application team in the Humanities Department at Hertfordshire University, for a project exploring the involvement of people with learning disabilities during World War I. With the programme lead at Oxford Brookes he is also currently exploring the possibilities of a cross-cultural project looking at how the stigma experienced by people with mental health problems in the UK compares with that experienced by those in Hong Kong.
