I am a Senior Tutor in the Centre for Learning and Research in Higher Education (CLeaR) at the University of Auckland. My expertise and research interests are in educational technologies and design. My projects have a strong focus on motivational design, skills development including the capacity for teaching with technologies (through MOOCs), networking, and problem solving.

Currently, I am championing the transition of our academic programmes into a blended format. I regularly facilitate courses on teaching with technologies and digital citizenship. My doctoral research investigates networked approaches to developing capacity for teaching with technologies.
