Kate Thompson


is a Senior Lecturer in Educational Technology at Griffith University. The underlying focus of her research is learning sciences, specifically collaborative learning and discovering patterns of learner interaction that could be used by an instructor to indicate progress through a task, relating this to the original design. A recent focus has been on the design and implementation of a program for environmental graduate students to learn how to participate in, lead, and train interdisciplinary research teams in the USA. Kate also leads teams of researchers working with networks of schools around Australia. Dr Thompson established and leads the Creative Practice Lab (CPL) at Griffith University. Located in a newly constructed learning space in the School of Education and Professional Studies, the CPL combines teacher education and digital technologies, with state-of-the-art video recording and online collaboration systems. The ultimate aim of the research in the CPL is to understand pedagogical practices in contemporary learning spaces, learning analytics informed practice, and online collaboration and design.
