Dr Anne Preston

Hilali Network Lead UK/ Principal Investigator

Anne’s research, teaching and scholarship revolves around the emerging challenges and opportunities inherent in learning with, through and around digital technology, with a particular focus on higher education. Anne is interested in how teachers and students can be better enabled to take the lead in understanding and innovating in how technology can be designed, used and evaluated in their own learning spaces – from online to face-to-face interactions. She collaborates with people interested in technology from a whole range of education fields, from primary, secondary, higher and adult learning to industry leaders. Her practice-led research therefore brings together a range of perspectives merging ideas from psychology to software engineering to arts, design practice and human computer interaction.
