My profile

Adam 2010 70x86.jpg

My University of Auckland profile page at the Centre for Academic Development (link in the profile box on the right) has all the basic information about me and what I do. I've recently started my first research & study leave since starting with the university in 2004. As part of that I'm starting a PhD in e-learning & global health, tentatively entitled Development of a sustainable partnership framework for utilising university courses, open educational resources and e-learning to address health & social needs in the Pacific. E-learning has been my focus in work and study, but I'm not so familiar with the development studies field. I'm heading off soon to Germany to undertake a PhD orientation course in development research at the Centre for Development Research, University of Bonn. One of the projects on WikiEducator that I recently discovered relating to the PhD is the Development Equation/ICT4D and A2k/OA site.

My wiki projects

My optional community service (learning contract) project

100px-L4C-small.png  Agreement
By signing this optional learning contract I will try to complete my training in basic wiki editing skills to achieve the status of a Wikibuddy. In return for this free training opportunity, I will give the gift of knowledge by donating or developing at least one free content resource licensed under a CC-BY-SA or CC-BY license which can be used by myself (and others) on WikiEducator.
Brief description of project
I wish to create a portal page with links to projects and resources on WikiEducator that relate to the PhD research I am just beginning (detailed above). This will help raise the profile of these projects and enable others with an interest in this area to locate relevant resources and network better with those involved.
Target date for completion
