Personal profile

Vision Statement

As Interim Theme Lead for Intercultural Engagement and Internationalisation, in the Research Centre for Global Education, my focus is on how higher education institutions are integrating an intercultural and global dimension into the purpose, functions, design and delivery of learning experiences and the impact that this has on students and academic staff.

My research interests include intercultural sensitivity in open, international online learning (OIL), as well as creative, experimental, participatory and interdisciplinary (online) pedagogies.

My perspectives are informed by participatory approaches and practices with students, staff and external partners, whereby learning with co-participants is reciprocal, where participants are not kept at a distance and where perspectives and viewpoints can be explored through the research process to address, question and promote issues about forms of engagement, pedagogical practices and capacity building.
