My name is Jen Ross. I am a lecturer at the University of Edinburgh in Edinburgh, Scotland, Deputy Director (KE) of Research and Knowledge Exchange in the School of Education, and part of the Digital Cultures and Education (DiCE) research group. Between 2012-15 I was programme director of the MSc in Digital Education, I’m one of the team behind the Manifesto for Teaching Online, and the E-learning and Digital Cultures MOOC, and I’m a former Beltane Parliament Engagement Fellow. 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.
I’m currently leading the following research projects:
- Artcasting: new approaches to evaluating engagement with art (funded by AHRC)
- Dissertations at a Distance (funded by Principal’s Teaching Award Scheme)
