Associate Professor of e-Learning, University of Canterbury

Associate Professor in e-learning in the School of Education Studies and Leadership at the University of Canterbury and Director of the e-learning Lab. I have worked in the higher education sector for the past 20 years in South Africa, Australia, and now New Zealand. My PhD (from the University of Cape Town) explored how inequality influences University students’ digital experience and consequently their digital identities. In the past few years, I have explored more closely the role of technological devices (for example, cell phones and laptops) play in students’ learning and in the development of students’ digital literacy practices. I teach Digital Citizenship in a pre-service teacher’s program, postgrad courses in e-learning and convene and teach into a PGCert in Tertiary Teaching program. I am involved in a global Commonwealth of Learning project on Digital Education Leadership and am passionate about developing a healthy and critical awareness of both the opportunities and challenges of living and learning in a digital world.
