MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I am a Post-doctoral fellow at The University of Hong Kong, Fac. Education - Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE). My main focus of study is philosophy of education. I avoid naming philosophy an area because it is more an outlook through which various issues in education can be examined. I follow the continental tradition rather than the analytical tradition in philosophy. My doctoral thesis on the concept of recognition in education deals with the problem of recognition in the ‘master-slave’ dialectics of Hegel, contemporary multiculturalism debate in political philosophy and phenomenological interpretation of recognition by Paul Ricoeur, with numerous implications for education.
I am currently involved in a research project called “Technology in Higher Education.” My role in this project is to articulate issues and assumptions that are beyond the strictly technical such as ideals of higher education, educational change, metaphysics of technology (Martin Heidegger), e-community, practices, e-learning, technology integration and philosophy of action (moral and ethical).
I am extremely pleased to join MirandaNet from which I expect valuable learning opportunities.
