The overall aim of my PhD research has been to make an original contribution to knowledge through my practice, founded on an emerging thesis in the form of three analyses to guide decision making in the design of learner-centred, technology-enhanced education.

The Claim section sets out the three key analyses which are referenced in the form [Ax] and these are supported with reference to the individual, specific and more diverse aims of my selection from a portfolio of practice, together with a triangulated assessment of my contribution to each item and their originality, impact and importance and the evidence for that judgement. These items of practice are referenced in the text in the form [Px] and can be found with a full description in Appendix 1.

“You have to begin to lose your memory, if only in bits and pieces, to realize that memory is what makes our lives. Life without memory is no life at all... Our memory is our coherence, our reason, our feeling, even our action. Without it we are nothing.” ― Luis Buñuel, 1982
