Andrew is leading thinking about Future Learning Spaces, student-centred active learning and the development of learning and graduate capabilities. He is known for his innovative work in developing audio feedback and exploring the potential of media-enhanced learning.

Andrew also leads the UK Media-Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG), a group which has inspired thousands of academics, developers and students to consider the ways they can enrich learning by responding to the affordances of personal and mobile technologies. For example, he has led initiatives within the group to develop methods and pedagogic understanding about using the recorded voice, smart mobile devices, and social media for learning. He has led collaborative book publishing activities, and supported open learning initiatives through the group.

Andrew remains committed to understanding new learning spaces, especially those that are digitally enhanced and connected seamlessly to the world beyond the classroom and continues to research and write about Social Open Learning Environments as disruptive future learning spaces. He blogs about this at Tactile Learning
