Michael Johnston

Creator of quality designs, curator of fresh ideas and teacher to the minds of tomorrow.

“I am first and foremost a Computing Lecturer for the Northern Regional College. I am also the Foundation Degree in Computing Course Director, which means I stress much more than I should and have more creative ideas about teaching than I have time to implement them…

As a course director, I have experience of leading teams and developing organisational strategy to get the job done, but also to implement a little innovation along the way.

As a researcher I am interested in how technology enhances learning and also in driving professional development in the teaching profession”

My Research Interests
  • Developing virtual environments to support and enhance learning in the workplace
  • Social Media and interactive platforms for the support and development of Communities of Practice
  • Technology Enhanced Learning
  • Mobile learning and games for education
  • Technical and cultural interactions in quality logistics and supply chains
  • Technological interfaces between IT, strategic and operations management
