Dr Sue CranmerLecturer
My research interests are focused on how digital technologies enhance learning and well-being across the life span at home, school and in other settings. In particular, I believe that digital technologies used for learning should be inclusive and my research is focussed on this.
I am a lecturer on the e-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) doctoral programme. On the TEL programme I co-convene ED.S821 Research Methods in Education and Social Science Settings with Dr Murat Oztok; and convene ED.S822 The Development of Professional Practice.
Previously I also taught on the undergraduate PiNE 313 course. Topics included digital technologies for learning, game-based learning, digital literacy and online safety.
I joined the Department of Educational Research in September 2012. Previously I worked at Futurelab - an independent not-for-profit organisation - for three years researching innovative uses of technology for education and learning. Before that I worked as a researcher at the Department of Education at Oxford University and as a lecturer and researcher at the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education, London University.
PhD Supervision Interests
I am interested in receiving PhD proposals in most areas related to digital technologies, education and learning. I'm particularly interested in digital inclusion; disengagement; disability; accessibility; social uses of digital technologies; digital literacy; online safety.
