My research centres on the role and impact of digital technologies in the arts, culture, society and education. I am currently involved in a National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching + Learning in Higher Education, Digital Skills in Action research project at IADT that analyses the role of digital technologies in teaching the First Year Introduction to FACT module. I am also pursuing practical research into concepts of the glitch in the digital arts, which will be published as a video essay – a genre of online video.
