My name is Jen Ross. I am a senior lecturer in Digital Education, co-director of the Centre for Research in Digital Education, and Future Education Fellow at the Edinburgh Futures Institute, at the University of Edinburgh in Edinburgh, Scotland.
I’m one of the team behind the MSc in Digital Education programme, the development of the interdisciplinary postgraduate provision at the Edinburgh Futures Institute, 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 and a former fellow of the Beltane Public Engagement Network. Between 2015-18 I was Deputy Director (KE) of Research and Knowledge Exchange in the School of Education. My research interests include online distance education, digital cultural heritage learning, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), digital cultures and futures, and online reflective practices. I supervise masters and PhD students in these and related areas.
