About Me

Welcome to my ePortfolio. I am an Academic Developer with a strong interest in online learning landscapes using Web 2.0 technologies. I hold a PhD in Information Systems applied to collaborative online learning and have been involved with e-learning as a teacher and researcher since 2002. In my research and work practice I aim to be as holistic as possible and this leads me well beyond the boundaries of electronic learning support system. I believe that, among many other things, education needs to be engaging and authentic in order to be successful.

Before joining the ranks at the Learning & Teaching Unit I was a Lecturer and Course Coordinator in the School of Computer and Information Science, UniSA (2004-2008). Current and past research interests include: modelling learning scenarios as activity systems (Engestroem, Y.) or design patterns (Alexander, C.) as well as experimenting with open source software (e.g. Moodle, Mahara, Elgg). I am currently working on a number of small projects to test aspects of UniSA’s new learning environment (to be introduced in 2010/11).
