Personal profile

Research interests

I am a learning researcher with an interest in self-directed learning and the personal learning networks that individuals engage in to support their learning. Increasingly, learners must take primary (and often, full) responsibility for their learning, so it is important to understand their motivations, how their learning skills emerge and develop (for example to identify learning needs, evaluate learning opportunities and recognise learning that has occurred), and how they can be supported and nurtured.
