I have a background in university teaching, small business ownership and management, and educational technology. I have 2 grown sons, a love of music and a passion for social justice. My most recent role at the University of Wollongong (Australia) has been as Manager, Open Education. I am doing my PhD on scholarship for 3 years full time at Deakin University in the Australia. In 2016 I planned my project and passed Colloquia (defence), in 2017 I’m collecting data and in 2018 I’ll write it up and complete. My research question is: How can open education contribute to the social inclusion of learners in Australian Higher Education programs?
