David is an experienced Learning Technologist, currently working for Warwick Business School. He brings over 10 years commercial experience in Internet technologies and using the Internet to connect online communities and seven years experience in Higher Education to his role as a Learning Technologist. David believes the role of a Learning Technologist is evolving, and is enjoying the exploration of 'what' they are and 'how' they work. David is using his background and knowledge of connecting communities online and is widening it in his daily role and responsibilities.
David has written two books on and around his role as a Learning Technologist: the first one published in May 2013 highlights his experiences with QR Codes (how he's used them, how David has seen them being used, and how you can use and tailor them to foster interaction in and out of your classroom). The second book (June 2013) is based on his reflection and research theme of 'what is a Learning Technologist?'.
About the Author
From 10 years’ experience as a Web Designer and Internet Consultant David has developed a respected reputation as a Learning Technologist. From 5 very productive years at the Business School, Bournemouth University, he joined the University of Leicester in May 2012. Using his background and experience with emerging Internet communication technologies David has been applying himself to Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and his work in areas of technology & pedagogical research. Through his work, with both campus and distance learning students, David has used his experiences as a Learning Technologist to develop the use of QR Codes to link the printed, paper-based world of learning materials to the growing digital and online world of the computer-, laptop-, tablet- and smartphone-connected students. He has developed a reputation as a champion of QR Codes in Higher Education: he was instrumental in developing and managing several projects at Bournemouth University that used and investigated the use of QR Codes and, through his own personal research stream, developed a series of resources and blog posts on QR Codes and their applied uses in Higher Education, in and out of the classroom. In 2012 David, along with colleagues, gained funding from the Higher Education Academy in the UK and delivered a workshop that would take delegates on a “journey of discovery, tailored to their own QR Code experience”. Now working at the University of Leicester, one of the UK's top 20 Universities, he concentrates his work on aspects of technology and how it can be applied to current teaching practices as well as developing new ways to use existing and emerging technologies, both in and out of the classroom environment. David shares his thoughts, research, work, conference & event reports, etc. on his Technology Enhanced Learning Blog “Don’t Waste Your Time” www.dontwasteyourtime.co.uk and shares this and much, much, more through Twitter (@hopkinsdavid), LinkedIn (David M Hopkins) and other online networks.
