Dr. Michael Christie

ChristieFrom 1999 to 2012 Michael Christie worked in Sweden, first at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, where he was in charge of a teaching and learning centre, and then from 2010 at Stockholm University, where he was Sweden's first Professor of Higher Education. During that time he has been an active member of ALE and served on the advisory committee. Michael's research is concerned with fundamental epistemological questions such as how knowledge is built and the best ways of promoting learning in engineering and higher education. He is also interested in the most pedagogical ways of using digital tools in teaching and learning. Having run courses for PhD supervisors as well as supervising and marking PhD theses, he is currently researching the most efficacious way of supporting the PhD process. His own PhD was a contact history between Aborigines and Colonists in early Victoria, 1836-1886, and he has maintained an interest in cross-cultural research. In Sweden he received substantial funding for research and development projects aimed at improving learning and teaching in Higher Education. He took up his current post at the University of the Sunshine Coast in February 2013.
