For this episode of ScHARR’s Communicable Research, we are joined by Dr Chris Blackmore who works in the Mental Health group within ScHARR.
Chris joined the University of Sheffield in 2002 to work on the SEPTIMUS project which developed and evaluated online Psychotherapy training resources. Chris was a tutor and Course Director on the course which became the MSc in Psychotherapy Studies.
He has developed a wider interest in online learning, and in particular on the role of emotions in online learning, which was the topic of his doctoral thesis, which he completed in 2016. Since completing his doctoral research, Chris has become interested in the potential of learning analytics and the use of data on wellbeing to enhance and personalize students' learning.
