Research

My adventures as a PhD student began with research around IMS Learning Design.  My research still involves IMS LD, insomuch as the specification continues to provoke my thoughts on technology in education (and challenge my abilities to finish writing up).  I am particularly interested in how the intervention of technology in the classroom affects the relationships and interactions between the human beings that inhabit those classrooms.  Not to mention that many of these issues can be found outside of the classroom, too.

I also like to tinker with technology.  Computer networks have been a particular fascination since the first modem turned up at home in the early 1990s.  My work supervising undergraduate final year project students provides some opportunity to engage in network-related research although, perhaps with some justification, my PhD supervisors might view this as a distraction.

Rather than duplicate existing information, you can find a list of my research outputs at ORCiD.
