I am a senior lecturer and the Postgraduate & Distance Coordinator at the University of Otago College of Education, as well as being am ember of the College’s Centre for Distance Education and Learning Technologies. My teaching is largely online, and focus on the use of ICT in education while I also teach some quantitative research methods.
My research is all related to ICT in some form or another. I have done work in primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, looking at ICT use and at issues associated with its use, including professional development, technical support, leadership and school culture. Generally, my research interests fall into three categories: - Distance education in secondary and tertiary institutions - Use of ICT in schools and universities - Social and psychological effects of using ICT
