Hi my name is Chris Rowell and I am a Academic Developer in Digital Enhanced Learning at London South Bank University. Previously I was Learning Technology Manager at Regent’s University in London, a Lecturer in Economics (1990- 2005) and a Lecturer in Education (2005-2010) at the University Centre Croydon.
My first degree (BA Hons) is in Economics. I have a PGCE and I also have two MA’s in Development Studies and Education (eLearning). More recently I have completed Prince2 training for project management. Currently I am doing a Doctorate in Education at the Institute of Education, UCL.
My research interests are all things to do with Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). More specifically the use and evaluation of social media by staff and students in Higher Education.
Currently, I am an editor of the Association for Learning Technology’s (ALT) blog and journal ‘Research in Learning Technology’. Previously I have been a member of the Staff and Educational Development Association’s (SEDA) National Executive (2015-10) and Conference Committee (2010-1015) and founding member SEDA’s Special Interest Group on Technology-Enhanced Practice. I am also a Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT).
I live in Camberwell and I’m interested in things to do with cycling, photography, travel, politics and London.
