Introduction
I recently completed my Doctor of Technology degree with thesis topic: A Framework for Ad Hoc Mobile-Technology-Enhanced Learning in a Higher Education Context. I am currently focused on academic productivity, delivering international conferences papers and submitting journal articles. Post-doc research topics emerged from my thesis are likely to include: mobile personal learning environments; digital differences and diversities in higher education contexts; and affordances and limitations of blended learning strategies.
