Research

My research focuses on the interplay between learning, information and technology. Consequently, my work has focused on the way people engage with information and/or technology to learn as students, as professionals and as people in their everyday life. A full list of the 16 proejcts I have undertaken since 2002 is available here.

It will provide strategies and recommendations for offering not just an individual subject but also an entire degree in a blended mode of study. They will be developed to respond to the unique context of the Faculty of Science and Technology specifically and QUT generally. I mentored Kate Davis (an Associate Lecturer) in the conduct of this project.

Re-conceptualising and re-positioning Australian library and information science education for the twenty-first century 2009-2010.
Australian Learning and Teaching Council
I lead a national project that developed a ‘Framework for the Education of the Information Professions in Australia’. The Framework will provide guidance on how best to reposition and reshape Australian LIS education to ensure it remains dynamic, responsive and sustainable to the evolving information age in order to meet the ever-changing marketplace demands of the 21st century. The project involved 12 academics from 11 institutions, 1 project manager and 9 research assistants working collaboratively across 6 states of Australia. The project was the first time Australia’s information educators worked collaboratively together. The project website can be found at http://www.liseducation.org.au. The final report is available here.

Library and information science education 2.0: guiding principles and models of best practice 2008-2009
Australian Learning and Teaching Council, Associate Fellowship (1 of 8 granted nationally in 2008)
The skills and knowledge required by library and information science (LIS) professionals are changing as a result of the web 2.0 phenomenon. The project aims to identify the skills and knowledge required by the ‘LIS professional 2.0′, and to develop a set of guiding principles and models of best practice that may serve to inform educational practice in the Australian LIS profession and beyond.  The project blog can be found at http://liseducation.wordpress.com/. The final report is available here.

Retrofitting University learning spaces: From Teaching Spaces to Learning Spaces 2008-2009
Australian Learning and Teaching Council
The national project lead by QUT’s Dr Geoffrey Mitchell explored learning spaces and places.  The project’s primary objective was to develop scalable and transferable solutions to the question: “how do we redevelop original university classroom spaces to support new ways to enable and facilitate student learning in a cost effective manner?” I was the co-leader of the sub-study exploring the student voice. The project used cultural probes and participatory techniques to explore how students perceive and experience learning spaces and places.
