How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I'm currently working on multiple projects related to how gestures can support learning secondary mathematics using ICT-based learning materials, including a findings and methodology paper. Additionally, I'm currently conducting a study exploring the pedagogical design practices of university teachers engaged in online course development.

Research in the areas of Cognitive Load Theory and Embodied Cognition has identified that the human motor system, including hand gestures and full body movements can benefit learning. Data collection methods in these areas often take the form of direct researcher observation or video recording-both of which are time and resource intensive. In this...
Cognitive load theory (CLT) applies what is known about human cognitive architecture to the study of learning and instruction, to generate insights into the characteristics and conditions of effective instruction and learning. Recent developments in CLT suggest that the human motor system plays an important role in cognition and learning; however,...

This chapter presents an emerging area of research within Cognitive Load Theory (CLT) with a focus on the observation and performance of gestures using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Previous studies investigating the educational benefits of gestures and human movement suggest that these actions can benefit learning. It is still...
Building upon previous work in Cognitive Load Theory and Embodied cognition, this presentation provides an overview of an in-progress study which investigates the effect of performing and observing different types of hand gestures (pointing and tracing) while engagine in a worked example geometry lesson on an iPad.
This project will explore university teachers' instructional design practice during the development of new and revision of existing online courses, including the supports they rely on, considerations for design and the role that instructional design professionals play in this process.
