How long have you worked with the Centre?
I joined the team in 2016 to work on a cross-European project – SHEILA (Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics). Since 2018, I have started to work on two new projects: LALA (Building Capacity to Use Learning Analytics to Improve Higher Education in Latin America)and EMBED (Developing a European Maturity Model for Blended Education).
How do you see digital education and why do you think it's important?

The Centre for Research in Digital Education launched in November 2015, bringing together research within the Moray House School of Education that spanned digital pedagogy, computational and data cultures within education and the impact of digital technology on children and childhood.
The Centre now brings together this work under three themes: Digital Cultures; Children & Technology; and Data Society.
