Research interests

Research focussed on the design, development and evaluation of technology enhanced learning interventions for undergraduate, postgraduate and life-long learners using various pedagogical approaches, relevant technologies and mixed-method evaluations. 


Current research activities:
  • Exploring online and blended learning pedagogies to promote constructivists learning utilising problem and enquiry based learning approaches 
  • If and how rapidly evolving learning technologies facilitate capacity building for sharing and consuming practices of technology use in learning and teaching?
  • Improving the use, adoption and diffusion of decentralised and disruptive technologies to deliver contextual and personalised learning
  • Exploring and addressing evaluation challenges across increasingly distributed learning technology ecosystems
  • Exploring the impact of culture on evolving learning solutions

Research Supervision Interest in Human Computer Interaction and Technology Enhanced Learning. 
  • Usability, user experience and effectiveness of learning technologies, social network analysis, learning analytics and personal learning environments
  • Computer supported collaborative work in the healthcare learning domain
  • Innovation and creative techniques for socio-technical system design
