Biography

I am the coordinator of Critical Skills at Maynooth University.  A historian by training, my current research examines the epistemology and norms of Wikipedia.  My research extends into technology-enhanced pedagogy, specifically the extent to which the use of technology is a complimentary, felicitous adjunct to achieving “traditional” learning outcomes and the extent to which technology-enhanced teaching creates learning outcomes that are sui-generous.
