Tony Carr

I work as an  educational technologist in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching and convene the e/merge Africa project. I have lived in Durban, London and Cape Town and after an earlier career as a Business and Economics educator a fascination with online interaction led to my work since 2000 as an educational technologist. My current operational and research interests include online collaboration, communities of practice in staff development, online facilitation and online professional networks including the e/merge Africa network which is mainly for educational technology practitioners and researchers in African higher education institutions.
