Research Interests

I have a particularly strong interest in Personal Epistemology and the role it plays in our lives: both as learners and as instructional designers. I am more interested in how target learners’ personal epistemology is considered in design work, than instructional designer’s personal epistemology; but I do believe the designer’s personal epistemology has a role the work they produce and that role should be investigated.

I’m also very interested in the roles of narratives and games as learning environments, specifically as means of heutagogical empowerment.
