MirandaNet Fellowship is not associated with any political grouping, but we support many of the aims of organisations such as Amnesty International and urge members to look at the AUUK site and see if they agree with these aims as well.

Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am based in the University Centre for Teaching and Learning (UCTL) at the University of Canterbury, in Christchurch, New Zealand.

My main work is in course development and assisting lecturers with trying out new ideas and approaches in flexible learning. This may include online discussions, video or audio recordings, use of online journals, groupwork, developing a learning community approach in formal taught courses and wikis or blogs. Hopefully the outcomes are embedded in good practice that will improve learning, student engagement and save time for the lecturer.

I teach online in courses to do with using the web in teaching and learning, educational design and community. When I have a chance I facilitate workshops ii leadership, Web 2.0 and learning communities. I enjoy learning; and having just visited Bronwyn Stuckey in Sydney and heard (again) about MirandaNet, I thought it's time I joined.
