Dr Louise Drumm

Biography I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Learning and Teaching Enhancement at Edinburgh Napier University, where I lead the MSc in Blended and Online Education, and lecture on the Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education programme. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA), and I am an editor for the journal Research in Learning Technology​.

I have led on a number of institutional initiatives, including the Digital Support Partnership project, a cross-university strategic project to support all staff in student engagement in online learning and teaching during the academic year 2020-21 and the short-life working group on Blended Learning in 2022. I am currently engaged in internal and external work on the rapidly developing context of higher education learning, teaching and assessment in the age of generative artificial intelligence.

I have worked in a number of universities in the UK as a learning technologist, academic developer, lecturer and software developer. I am also an experienced theatre director and practitioner, and I like to explore creative approaches to academic practice and development.

My research interests include the relationship between digital education and theory, critical digital pedagogy, open education practices, feminist pedagogies, digital and AI literacies, and academic practice in Higher Education.

I am open to applications for PhDs in the areas of digital education, academic practice, higher education, critical digital and AI literacy, and theories of learning and teaching.
