I currenly work as Principal Project Lead at Coventry University’s Disruptive Media Learning Lab (DMLL) and am an Oxford Internet Institute DPhil alumnus. I was born in beautiful Seville, Spain, and moved to the UK almost a decade ago.
DMLL is a cross-university experimental unit specially created to drive innovation in teaching and learning at Coventry University. Here I have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from different faculties and units who are interested in exploring new practices, models and contexts for education.
My main areas of interest focus on Education & Technology, the development and assessment of Digital Competences, Open Educational Resources (OER), Connected Learning and Internationalisaton of the Curriculum (IoC). More generally, I am interested in the social and cultural implications of information and communication technologies and the role of the Internet and computerisation in everyday life.
After completing my DPhil (PhD) at Oxford, I joined Coventry University in 2014 as Online International Learning Programme Manager, which allowed me to work at the intersection of online learning and internationalisation. Prior to moving to the UK, I worked at the International University of Andalucia (UNIA), where I was one of the founders of the Digital Practices & Cultures Programme and its Centre for Creation & Experimentation in Digital Content. Before that, I worked at the University of Seville and was a member of ZEMOS98.
I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of the Personal Networks & Communities Lab of the University of Seville.
