Diana Laurillard 



Diana Laurillard is Professor of Educational Technology at the Open University, UK. She has spent twenty-five years in research, development and evaluation of interactive multimedia materials and internet services in education and training, covering a wide range of discipline areas.

She has made a significant contribution to fundamental research on the relationship between student learning and learning technologies.

The idea of a ‘conversational framework’, is used to define the learning process for higher education, and then to interpret the extent to which new technology can support and enhance high level conceptual learning.

Her book ‘Rethinking University Teaching’ has been widely acclaimed, and is still used as a set book in courses on learning technology all over the world.

As Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Learning Technologies and Teaching), her role is to ensure that learning technologies achieve their appropriate balance within the full range of learning and teaching methods in the University’s courses.
