Nigel Robertson

eLearning Designer Team Leader, University of Waikato

Nigel has been working with learning technologies in Higher Education for over 20 years. Originally from the UK, he currently leads the e-Learning and digital literacy team at the University of Waikato, New Zealand.  He recognises that we are living in a time of flux where both academia and society are still very much at the beginning of understanding what the Internet might make possible.

Besides rapidly evolving technology, education must find ways to work in an environment of increased access and accountability; global economic and political uncertainty; and changes to the life and taught experience of our learners.  His team at Waikato work across the learning, research and administrative domains to empower staff with the skills, tools and attitudes that enable them to work effectively in this time of constant change.

Nigel is a member of THETA 2017’s Experience Committee.
