I am an Associate Professor and Departmental Chair in the Department of Physiotherapy at the University of the Western Cape (South Africa) where I conduct research into the use of digital technologies in the classroom and their influence on teacher and student relationships. My PhD evaluated the use of technology-mediated practices for clinical education, and led to the development of design principles for blended learning environments in the health professions. Most recently I have started developing an area of research on the impact of artificial intelligence in clinical practice and health professions education. I think that machine learning algorithms will come to have an increasing influence on clinical decision-making and I believe it is important that the 21st century healthcare agenda should not be driven solely by the values of governments, private venture capitalists and software developers in the global north. I am interested in the value of a critical pedagogy in thinking about the use of technology in higher education and have recently published a chapter on a critical pedagogy for online learning in physiotherapy education. I am the editor of OpenPhysio, a new open access journal with a focus on physiotherapy education, that aims to challenge traditional assumptions about academic publication and research dissemination. I am also the co-founder of In Beta, an international community of practice that aims to initiate conversations around the practice-based experiences of physiotherapy educators from around the world.
