Biography

I am responsible for providing academic leadership in blended and online learning (BL/OL), and for leading the development of the Learning Analytics policy. Since 2006, I have informed and supported the adoption of centrally supported educational technologies, delivered CPD offerings in the area of BL/OL, and collaborated in multiple teaching innovation projects involving TEL. I have led innovation and research projects funded by the National Forum around digital capacity and open educational practice (OEP). I have also represented UL in a number of its advisory boards and served as institutional representative in other National Forum projects. Currently I am working on the national delivery of the National Forum open course ‘Getting started with online teaching’ and leading the course for facilitators. At international level, I currently lead a work package in an Erasmus+ project in OEP and have recently served as country expert in TEL for the European Commission Centre for European Policy Studies. I contribute to the scholarship of T&L through dissemination in peer reviewed high impact sources. I am module leader for Blended Learning (TL5101) and Technology Enhanced Learning: Theory and Practice (TL5112), delivered in the GradDip in T&L, and I was course director for the programme (2014-17). I also teach at undergraduate level in UL, and in an online masters for the National Open University of Spain (UNED). 

Research Interests

Since 2003, I have championed institutional and inter-institutional research at national level and disseminated research outputs in peer reviewed high impact publications. All my publications are disseminated openly through the UL Institutional RepositoryFor a full citation analysis report, see hereKeywords: technology enhanced learning, e-learning, blended learning, transitional adjustment, plagiarism, e-mentoring
