My name is Jen Ross. I am a senior lecturer in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh in Edinburgh, Scotland. I am co-director of the Centre for Research in Digital Education, and the MSc in Education Futures in the Edinburgh Futures Institute.
My research interests include education and cultural heritage futures, online distance education, digital cultural heritage learning, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), digital cultures, and online reflective practices. I supervise masters and PhD students in these and related areas.
I’m one of the team behind the MSc in Digital Education programme, the Manifesto for Teaching Online, and the E-learning and Digital Cultures MOOC. I lead the Digital Cultural Heritage cluster in the Centre for Data, Culture and Society, and the Digital Cultural Heritage Research Network. I’m a senior fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Between 2015-18 I was Deputy Director (KE) of Research and Knowledge Exchange in the School of Education.
