The ‘Italian job’

Dr Mike Hobbs (FST) and Dr Debbie Holley (FHSCE) recently visited the University of Salento, Lecce, Italy, as part of the ERASMUS staff exchange program.  Mike and Debbie share research interests in the ‘digital classroom’ and data analysis. Their hosts, Professor Elisa Palomba, a child psychologist expert in early years education, and Professor Enrico Ciavolini, an expert statistician, are interested in intercultural research, and wanted to find out more about how digital technologies could feed into their own practice.

Debbie and Mike taught students on the Masters in Psychology course where the students were introduced to a range of augmented reality artefacts.
