Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning

Research Overview

I am a Lecturer in Technology Enhanced Learning. I research the experiences of students and educators. I am interested in the relationship between people and technology, the affordances of online spaces, how we build communities in those spaces and how we use technology to make high quality education more equitable and accessible. The development of community, trust and a sense of belonging cannot be taken for granted in an online context but must be created. Care in education - something that until recently was positioned in the feminist domain - is increasingly recognized as important for all educators to consider.
