My main research areas include Internet, digital and information literacies, school and HE pedagogy, Appreciative Inquiry (AI), Inquiry-based Learning (IBL), primary education. learning styles and Personal Development Planning (PDP). During my PhD (completed 2012), I explored information management undergraduates’ and their teachers’ perceptions of being Internet literate, of Internet literacy and their Internet-related practices, with the aim of identifying implications for information departments’ pedagogy and curriculum. In particular, it explores the extent to which popular digital native narratives surrounding students’ use of the Internet, coincide with the outcomes of this study (see Peter Stordy Thesis for more details).

I am interested in supervising PhDs in Literacies, Education and Web Authoring.

I am a member of the Libraries and Information Society Research Group
