Biography

I am currently Interim Pro-Director: Academic Development at the UCL Institute of Education. Previously, I have served as Head of Department for Culture, Communication and Media; and Head of the Centre for Doctoral Education, a role that included serving as Faculty Graduate Tutor.


My academic work built on a first degree in Maths and Philosophy by moving into the area of Educational Technology. Throughout my career I have combined research, teaching and service roles, working at various times as an educational developer, learning technologist, programme leader and Head of the IOE's Learning Technologies Unit. 

Research Summary

My research focuses on the use of technology in education. I have mainly explored this in the context of Higher Education, for example by looking at the way that students use digital devices, networked services and traditional resources in order to learn. I am also interested in the ways that teachers create and manage the curriculum, including the role of technology in constructing claims about disciplinary knowledge.


I am particularly interested in work that explores foundational issues around theory and methodology. I have also undertaken work on evaluation, and on digital games and learning.


I maintain a profile at: https://ioe.academia.edu/MartinOliver. Where permissions permit, copies of my publications are available there.


Teaching Summary

Currently, my teaching is limited to work with doctoral students. My capacity to take on new students is limited, but I would be interested in discussing applications that address the use of technology in contexts such as undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral study, which have a strong theoretical component.
