Research interests:

My new media research focuses on where it intersects with assessment in higher education. Are online examinations secure (or even a good idea)? How can we improve feedback in mass higher education? What assessment approaches scale well?

Supervision:

Please get in touch any time to discuss research projects at the intersection of new media and assessment.
