I am a Senior Lecturer in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh, with particular focus on research and engagement in the area of digital cultural heritage learning, engagement and evaluation. I have been working on projects with the GLAM sector since 2007, when I was part of the research team for the National Museums Online Learning Project, and recently I led the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council funded Artcasting project. I am Deputy Director (KE) of Research and Knowledge Exchange in the School of Education (University of Edinburgh), a member of the Centre for Research in Digital Education, and former programme director of the fully-online MSc in Digital Education. I lead the Digital Cultural Heritage Research Network in Edinburgh. My research interests include online distance learning, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), digital futures, reflective practices, and cultural and educational institutions online.
