Dr Jeremy Knox

Lecturer in Digital Education

I am co-director of the Centre for Research in Digital Education (Data Society) and a Lecturer in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh. My research interests include critical posthumanism and new materialism, and the implications of such thinking for education and educational research, with a specific focus on the digital.  My published work includes critical perspectives on Open Educational Resources (OER) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

I am Associate Editor for new journal Postdigital Science and Education with Springer, and I also co-convene the Society for Research in Higher Education (SRHE) Digital University network.
