Research statement

While Lindsay’s earlier publications and speaking engagements focused on blended and online learning design, more recent work has explored the particular affordances of physical learning spaces and face-to-face events, and a philosophical critique of the technological approach.

Her doctoral thesis explores how art and design teachers can contribute to an imagination of the university. Building on historical and contemporary ideas of the university, and inspired by Ronald Barnett’s writing on feasible utopias, the work aims both to elicit imaginations of the university and to propose a framework for such a process.
