PhD (2013). Blended learning in physiotherapy education: Designing and evaluating a technology-integrated approach. University of the Western Cape, South Africa. Full-text download. My doctoral project was on the use of social media and other emerging technologies to enhance teaching and learning practices within a physiotherapy undergraduate curriculum. As part of that process, I developed a set of design principles for online and blended learning environments in health professions education.
