MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I live in Wales and France and work half time for a small independent research organisation, Pontydysgu - which is based in Germany! (www.pontydysgu.org) My time is divided between research, teaching and project management - and writing the occasional book. I am first and foremost a practitioner and run teacher training courses, develop materials and write handbooks for teachers who want to use e-learning in their work. I also teach occasional 'visiting lecturer' courses on ITT and just about to start a contract for an international aid agency developing an on-line programme in e-learning for teachers in less well developed countries. I'm also currently excited about mobile technologies in the classroom.
The other half of my time I undertake evaluation work, run training courses in evaluation and write about evaluation - including a handbook for project managers - and I work mainly for the international NGOs, evaluating development aid intervention (education programmes) in the Middle East. I'm currently working around the idea of an Evaluation 2.0 - how web 2 tools and social software can be used to support evaluation and how this can reshape our ideas of evaluation, in particular how it moves on Guba and Lincoln's 4th Generation Evaluation.
