I am a teaching and learning consultant at the Centre for Teaching and Learning at Auckland University of Technology. I have a keen interest in Web 2.0 technologies and its potential to engage students and teachers in the teaching and learning process. I am particularly interested in exploring Web 2.0 tools for creating, nurturing and maintaining virtual communities, social connectedness and fostering social constructivism. I recently completed my PhD that utilised a design-based research approach to investigate how mobile and social media tools could be embedded in a course to foster autonomy and student-driven and determined learning (Heutagogy).
My more recent focus has been investigating mobile AR/VR for enabling authentic learning, and learner-generated content and context.
