Cert. in Teaching and Learning Skills, DPhil, MSc (ADMIS) and BSc (Hons) in Geography

Biography

Lesley's area of research interest covers several areas: Social Media, E-learning Innovation, Hypermedia and heritage data handling. Her doctoral research focused on the field of hypertext and software development. She has since explored the application of hypermedia, e-learning support and innovation through many vehicles.  She has also researches and supports postgraduate students in many areas associated with social media and education.
Current research at the Department of Information Systems and Operations Management at the University of Auckland, focuses on the analysis of social media trends and the modelling of multimedia heritage data sources to create robust data models and management tools.
