Using social and ubiquitous computing to enhance education, health and well-being

25 October 2017

A Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation seminar.

The CRLI has invited key international scholars from leading centres to collaborate on its project Understanding and Facilitating Learning in Emerging Knowledge Co-creation Spaces, funded under the Sydney Research Excellence Initiative 'SREI’ 2020 scheme at the University of Sydney, and present a series of lectures, seminars and workshops. On October 25, Professor Patrick Olivier, from Newcastle University in the UK, will use the CRLI weekly lunchtime seminar timeslot to present some of his current work related to the application of social and ubiquitous computing to education, health and well-being, as well as the development of new approaches for interaction (such as novel sensing platforms and interaction techniques) and human-centred design methods.

  • Speaker: Patrick Olivier is Professor of Human-Computer Interaction in the School of Computing, Newcastle University, UK, where he founded (and currently leads) Open Lab, the university's centre for cross-disciplinary research in digital technologies. Professor Olivier's research interests include the topic of his presentation for CRLI, as well as the development of new approaches for interaction (such as novel sensing platforms and interaction techniques) and human-centred design methods. He is principal investigator and co-director of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Centre for Doctoral Training in Digital Civics, which was established in 2014 to provide supervision for 55 PhD students, concluding in 2022. The centre is supported by a $7.9m award from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and seeks to train the next generation of researchers in the design, deployment and evaluation of digital community and local government services. Professor Olivier is also principal investigator and director of a new $17.5m Digital Economy Research Centre in Digital Civics. He says the teams in both initiatives are working closely with their local government partners.
