We are joined on the podcast by the following brilliant people:

Phil Moffitt


Philip Moffitt specialises in the research of technology enhanced learning for engineers, facilities managers, and technicians in critical national infrastructure. He is a chartered engineer, facilities manager, and user experience ergonomist, working as a senior lecturer at the Royal School of Military Engineering in Chatham, Kent, UK. Philip’s research interests lie in qualitative enquiry and collaborative change to technology enhanced learning, enabling people to collectively face contingent and unforeseen challenges for work and learning. He is currently researching the mediating role of technologies for social development, organisational change, and vocational practice in post-conflict reconstruction and disaster relief, where the requirement and opportunity for technology enhanced learning is often only identified at the time and place of need, by dispersed teams in geographically distal settings. Philip lives in Kent, with his partner Eleanor, and their miniature Schnauzers. He undertakes voluntary activities as a coach and mentor with those who are disengaged from education, and is an alumnus of the doctoral programme in e-research and technology enhanced learning, with Lancaster University’s Department of Educational Research.
