About

GillI’m Gill Clough and I’m interested in technology, specifically mobile technology and GPS together with Web 2.0 social technologies. I particularly like the way people subvert technology and devise ways of using them which the designers hadn’t thought of.

I’m working as a researcher on the 3-year EU funded JuxtaLearn project. I’m based in IET, the Institute of Educational Technology, working with a diverse and interesting set of European Partners looking into addressing the problems presented by threshold concepts through the juxtapositioning of science learning with performance.

Like Gill, I’ve just finished my PhD – and I’m also working as a research fellow on The Open University’s SocialLearn project. I’m interested in the ways in which people interact and learn together online and also, increasingly, I’m interested in the intersection between learning and happiness, enjoyment and delight.

    Would either or both of you be interested in talking about your work (completed, eg., dissertations) or current as part of CPsquare’s Research and Dissertation series? I think you would find interest and you’d enjoy it. 🙂

    Hi, Gill.

    We developed a new real estate technology.

    We would like to send you our press release. How can we send it to you?

    Hi Gil and Rebecca, I looked for contact info but didn’t see any so am leaving a comment. I work with engineering website EEWeb.com and would love to interview you for our engineer spotlight (see our latest interview here –
    http://www.eeweb.com/spotlight/interview-with-dr.-mung-chiang). Let me know if you’re interested and we can go from there. I can be reached at claire@eeweb.com.
