I have published over 90 articles, book chapters, research reports and given over 70 presentations, seminarrs and workshops. Throughout my career I have established a strong profile in the field of social science research, my work is cross-disciplinary with a focus on the interplay between learning, technology and information. Consequently my work has focussed on the ways people experience informatoin and/or technology to learn as students, as professionals and as people in their everyday life.
As a social science reseacher my goal is to not only build new knowledge but to actively ensure the results of my reserach has impact and informs existing practice. My publication strategy therefore, has two strong and equally important focis. The first focus is to share, and obtain critically commentary, on the theoretical and findings of my reserach with the research scholarly community. The second focus is to inform or influence current practice within the various contexts and setting that my reseach is being undertaken, be this higher education, professional practice or everyday life. Importantly the two foci of my publications strategy to not site in isolation or opposition of each other; instead they work together in a multi-layered and synergistic manner to provide holistic dissemination and impact across the many stakeholders relevant to my work.
