Dr Vickel Narayan
Learning & Teaching Consultant
Vickel Narayan is a Learning and Teaching Consultant at the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CfLAT) at the Auckland University of Technology. Vickel has a keen interest in mobile and social media tools and how it could be effectively used to engage students and teachers in the teaching and learning process. He is particularly interested in investigating mobile and social media tools for enabling learner autonomy, ownership, and creativity. This also formed the basis for his PhD that utilised a design-based research approach to investigate how mobile and social media tools could be embedded in a course to foster autonomy and student-driven and determined learning (Heutagogy).
Vickel’s more recent focus has been investigating mobile AR/VR for enabling authentic learning, and learner-generated content and context.
