Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA
I am a Digital Learning Fellow in the Digital Learning Lab at MITx. In my role, I work with MIT faculty to create online courses and digital learning tools for the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, and researches and conducts experiments into the best practices in online pedagogy. I have developed several courses currently available on edX, including "Qualitative Research Methods", "Shaping Work of the Future", "Tools for Academic Engagement with Public Policy" and "Democracy and Development: Perspectives from Africa".
I am very interested in the ways that how, where and when we learn are changing, as a result of technological change. I am working as a researcher on MIT's Taskforce on the Work of the Future, working on a project which seeks to examine best practices in online and blended workforce education at scale. I am working on a tool to help integrate "21st century skills" into humanities and social sciences curriculum and assessments, to help students obtain a wide variety of skills and create more engaging learning experiences.
