Dr Murat ÖztokLecturer
My research interests concern collaborative work and group discussion in digitally-mediated environments, with a theoretical and practical commitment to social justice and equity within learning communities. I draw upon Marxist and Post-Colonial perspectives, and explore the manifestations of social, historical, political, and economic Discourses in digitally-mediated environments. In particular, I am interested in understanding the ways that sociocultural elements inherent in applications of digital education operate to marginalize students who fall outside the ideations of dominant ideology.
PhD Supervision Interests
I have a broad range of academic interests, spanning the domains of psychology, sociology, cultural studies, and sociocultural learning theories. I am interested in works aiming to support marginalized or alienated individuals in collaborative work and provide them opportunities to become an equal co-learner.
