Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning

Research Overview

My research program lies at the intersection of distance education and the internationalisation of higher education. Taking up sociocultural learning theories, I aim to provide comprehensive explanations of current higher education and improve students’ academic experiences. I am interested in the issues of accessibility and equality in different online higher education contexts and the relationships between being and learning in online learning environments. Three different educational settings in my work include: 1) open universities, 2) online doctoral programmes, and 3) oversea campuses. I am currently working on a research project named “Non-Western students’ perceptions of/experiences in UK-based distance PhD programmes”
