My ‘teaching’ is primarily the mentoring of PhD students, of whom I’m very proud! Search my blog for more news stories about them . . .

I regularly give tutorial introductions for professional development and doctoral summer schools, e.g.
- SoLAR Storm – a Distributed Research Lab providing doctoral training for Learning Analytics students
- 10th ICO International Research School – workshop leader for educational doctoral students
- EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative and online webinars: several invitational seminars delivered online on Learning Analytics
- Research as Hypermedia Discourse, “Nuts & Bolts” Research Methods Conference, The Open University, Milton Keynes
- Visual Sensemaking for Contested Collective Intelligence, UK Visual Analytics PhD Summer School, Middlesex University
Finally, I have done some work on tools for e-PhDs, that is, part-time doctoral research conducted at a distance from the student’s supervisor and lab.
UTS Master of Data Science & Innovation
The Open University Business School launched the world’s first MBA level course on the red hot topic of Managing Knowledge in 1999 [archive page]. Joining this pioneering, multidisciplinary, distance learning team, I contributed:
Knowledge Technologies in Context (Course Unit): Conceptual foundations for the relationships between knowledge forms and technologies.
The Cost of Knowledge (Course Unit): What are the costs of obtaining information and turning it into useful knowledge? Put this into practice in a collaborative sensemaking exercise in an internet team.
Sensemaking in an Internet Team (Assignment): A novel internet-based assignment to reflect on the sensemaking and team processes involved in analyzing diverse information resources on the Web.
- Managing Knowledge: An Essential Reader which brought together the key readings for the MBA. [chapter eprint]
