Lecturer of Business Administraiton
I have recently taken up the responsibility of the Director of the new 3D printing lab at the College, a first of its kind lab in a business school. http://makerlab.illinois.edu
I'm Researching the role of technology in enabling collective action, co-operative production, information sharing , sensemaking and collaborative work.
Currently I am applying learning from this to structuring environments that enable students to learn in online /blended environments, with a focus on peer-learning, that can scale. I am also exploring the "gamification" of education to create more engaging environments.
I am also interested in social network analysis and its applications to organizational networks, student networks, people networks
