Researcher at Glasgow Caledonian University: informal/non-formal, professional (knowledge worker) learning. learning networks, MOOCs.

My primary research interest is the informal professional learning undertaken by knowledge workers and the personal learning networks they construct to support this learning. At the Caledonian Academy I have been involved in studies exploring knowledge workers learning practices in the petrochemical and financial services industries, examined professional learning in connectivist and mainstream MOOCs, supervised a PhD student exploring research student learning by examining their employability development, and undertaken some more 'blue sky thinking': specifying tools to support knowledge worker learning through a process we call 'Charting'.
