Professor Jane Seale Inaugural Lecture: Boundary Encounters of the Interdisciplinary Kind

Followed by drinks reception.

My research interests lie at the intersections between disability, technology and inclusion. To cross the boundaries of these different research fields I have become what Wenger (1998) called a 'broker', facilitating knowledge exchange between different disciplinary research communities. In this lecture I will share some examples of these 'boundary encounters', focusing in particular on those that have a relevance to higher education. Using examples relating to accessible e-learning and student voice I hope to illuminate both the challenges and rewards of doing interdisciplinary research.
