I am a digital sociologist interested in the intersection between technology, society and education.
Professionally I have been involved in digital technologies in learning environments since 2006. This has been in a range of sectors including travel, retail, sports coaching, policing, financial services, telecommunications and higher education. For more details see my LinkedIn profile.
In 2012 I decided to see education from the other side of the fence and became an ‘online’, distance and part-time learner, studying for a Social Sciences degree with the Open University. I graduated in 2016 and went on to begin a postgraduate research degree with the University of Birmingham’s School of Education. My thesis in ‘alternative format’ includes a series of publications alongside more conventional chapters.
The title of my thesis is HUMANS, HIGHER EDUCATION AND TECHNOLOGY – A CORPUS-ASSISTED DISCOURSE AND GENEALOGICAL ANALYSIS OF THE IDEA OF A UNIVERSITY .
I am currently developing a new postgraduate programme – Design for Learning Environments.
