Professional biography

I am a lecturer in the Institute of Educational Technology, sharing my time between research and supporting Open University courses. I'm interested in informal and self-directed learning, mobile and locational teaching and learning practices, community based learning and hacker/maker cultures.

I am currently working on the following research projects:

MAZI - exploring community developed ("DIY") computer networks to support citizen engagement and collective awareness ( ). In this project we are investigating how community owned and developed computer networks might solve local social issues and sustainable living. This project is funded by the EU's Horizon2020 CAPS framework (Jan 2016 - Dec 2018). I am working with Dr. Gareth Davies and we're working closely with community technologists SPC on a pilot study in Deptford, London, 'Creeknet'. The Open University is responsible for meta-evaluation of the four project pilot studies (Deptford, Zurich, Berlin, Kokkinopilos).

Recent Projects

The following projects have been recently completed, but I am still writing up the findings and interested to find ways to continue the work - get in touch!

RE:FORM - "Reimagining Education for the Future Of Redistributed Manufacturing" ( ). In this 2015 project we explored how Open University design students can work remotely over the internet with distant trainee fabrication learners ('makers') based in MAKLab, Glasgow to collaboratively design and build full scale chair prototypes that are fabricated using industrial CNC routers. This project was funded by the Royal College of Art and EPSRC in their exploration of redistributed manufacturing supply chains, and our approach was to look at the education and training challenges (Future Makespaces in Re-Distributed Manufacturing, EPSRC  (EP/M017591/1) ). I'm working with colleagues to further explore making in community settings, and also how we might develop the RE:FORM work to support design-based university curricula.

SALSA - "Sensors and Apps for Languages in Smart Areas" (, exploring location triggered language learning. In SALSA (2014 -2015), we explored how to trigger language resources around the city, and to understand their effectiveness as a learning resource, as well as identifying how language learners use smartphones more generally. We have also begun to consider how this approach might be used to encourage the exploration of cultural heritage of cities by tourists and locals, working with colleagues in the MAZI project (see above). This project was funded by the Open University, building on the MK:Smart project exploring how Milton Keynes can develop as a smart city

MASELTOV - "Mobile Assistance for Social Inclusion and Empowerment of Immigrants with Persuasive Learning Technologies and Social Network Services" ( This was a three year EU Framework 7 project running from January 2012 to December 2014. In this project, I worked as a researcher investigating how incidental learning might support recent immigrants with social inclusion and language learning, devising an incidental learning framework as part of the OU team. We considered how feedback and progress indicators might create coherent learning journeys from fragmented episodes, and how multisensory contextual support can support situated learning.

Research interests

Research Interests: Informal and incidental learning, networked and mobile learning and teaching, fieldwork, location specific and context aware, social construction of technology.

EdD supervision: I am currently co-supervising Phillippa Seaward in her exploration of Open University students' use of Facebook as a complimentary learning environment, and whether this enhances or disrupts their studies (2015- Present).

PhD supervision: I co-supervised Rean van der Merwe,(OU Faculty of Maths and Computing) Thesis title: "Hyperlocal online deliberation and civic governance: a socio-technical perspective". Rean passed his viva in Dec. 2012.

Current research projects


Previous projects (at The Open University)

Previous Projects (School of Oriental and African Studies)

As eLearning developer, I was responsible for working alongside academics, administrators, and IT developers to enable the migration of business postgraduate courses from paper-based format to an online learning system which had been small scale piloted for a year. responsible for coordination of activities, advising on online pedagogical practices, and day to day management of the online system (Lotus Notes).


Previous Projects (London College of Printing)

From 1996-1999 I was a Research Fellow in the Telematics Design Group at the London College of Printing. I worked on two EU Framework 4 projects, and a UK funded research project:

MAID (Multimedia Assets for Industrial Design): EU FP4 26 partner project developing online tools and services for industrial designers across Europe. Part of the LCP team responsible for development an online database driven website of resources for industrial designers.

Teaching interests

In 2017-2018 I will be teaching on the U501 course ("Doing Postgraduate Research") workshop sessions on Conference Presentations. I will be part of the team teaching Open University postgraduate research students on how to prepare for, plan, and present research presentations.

I am a course writer on the Open University postgraduate H800 module ('Technology-enhanced learning: practices and debates') and will be part of the team developing its planned replacement.

I am an IET 'data wrangler' supporting an OU faculty in their understanding of the data being generated about their courses and modules (for example student end of module surveys) and providing pedagogical expertise to help support future course development.

I have previously acted as tutor at the Royal College of Art and London College of Printing teaching web design, and networking to posgraduate students.

This international, nine partner EU funded project will explore the potential of community built (“DIY”) computer networks to develop neighbourhood cohesion, knowledge sharing, and sustainable living in urban environments. The project will develop a software and hardware toolkit for community activists and test this in four pilots across Europe, based on pairings of academic and local community partners, and developing local services alongside community representatives. The Open University will play a leading role in a UK based case study working alongside a London based community computing organisation, and provide expertise around community informatics. The project has a multidisciplinary aspect bringing together researchers and practitioners from from the fields of computer networking, human-computer interaction, urban design, architecture and community informatics.

RE:FORM (‘Reimagining Education for the Future of Redistributed Manufacturing’) has been awarded £25K by the Royal College of Art to carry out a feasibility study as part of the larger RCA EPSRC funded project on ‘Future Makespaces in Distributed Manufacturing’ ( ). The project is a collaboration between the Open University and MAKLab, a makerspace in Glasgow. The project aims to (1) Understand the key challenges faced by makespaces in providing effective and relevant education and training for redistributed manufacturing in the UK (2) to explore the potential of university- makespace collaborations to fulfil the education and training requirements for effective distributed manufacturing in the UK; and (3) Investigate the role of accreditation in supporting career trajectories in redistributed manufacturing. This will be achieved through (a) a series of workshops bringing together participants from education, makerspaces, and industry; (b) a ‘summer school’ pairing Open University design students with vocational learners at MAKlab to collaboratively design and fabricate furniture prototypes, communicating via the internet, and (c) a number of interviews with industry representatives.
