Learning technologies and new media
Learningcognition and motivation
I submitted my PhD in December 2007 and have since worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow and a Senior Research Associate at CoCo Research Centre. My research interests lie broadly in the field of using technology for environmental education. This includes research into using simulation models (system dynamics models and agent based models), mobile learning, online learning and more recently learning in virtual worlds. Other research that I have been involved in includes how teams work together in online learning environments, and understanding complex systems. I am a co-convenor of the Special Interest Group for Emerging Researchers in the Australian Association of Environmental Education.
