Dr. Nicola Pallitt is an Academic Staff Development Practitioner: Technology-Enhanced Teaching and Learning Specialist, CHERTL, Rhodes University
I coordinate the efforts of the Educational Technology Unit at Rhodes and offer professional development opportunities for academics to use technologies effectively in their roles as educators and researchers. I provide learning design support and consultation in relation to teaching with technology (technology integration) and blended and online teaching and learning. I support lecturers to design appropriate technology mediated learning experiences for their students. I supervise postgraduate students and co-teach on formal courses in Higher Education. I co-convene the e/merge Africa Facilitating Online course. I received my PhD in Media Studies (2013) and Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education Studies (2014) from the University of Cape Town. I hope to engage fellow researcher-practitioners in research that takes critical, contextual and pedagogically informed approaches to educational technology. I am an avid sketchnoter, networked scholar and lifelong learner. Contact: [email protected]
