My profile

Kia ora! I'm Keryn, a born and bred kiwi.  I use wikis in my professional life, but have always used the 'push a button and see what happens' approach, so wanted to try something a bit more structured :-)

Professional background

I have a PhD in psychology (in which I explore the social, cognitive and linguistic origins of autobiographical memory) and since graduation have been working for the College of Education at the University of Otago.


  • Milton Primary School
  • Lumsden Primary School
  • Northern Southland College
  • University of Otago

My interests


I teach and research in the areas of quantitative research methods and information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. My research areas fall into three broad categories:

  1. Distance education in secondary and tertiary institutions
  2. Use of ICT in schools and universities
  3. Social and psychological effects of using ICT

Journals I am involved with


I have many interests, but currently it doesn't feel like I have time to do any of them. However, I do manage to spend time reading (most kinds of novels) 

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.

- I am still deciding whether I should commit to this now - life is frantic so may have to leave this till a bit later.
