Who I am
My name is Michael Sean Gallagher. I am an Assistant Professor at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (한국외국어대학교) in Seoul, Korea. I am also currently a doctoral student at the Institute of Education, University of London. My research focus is on developing mobile environments & communities to support academic practice in the Humanities in higher education. My specific focus is the universities of Korea. Aside from mobile learning, I am most interested in elearning, online community development, and open learning.
I am a facilitator of the MobiMOOC course and a member of the MobiMOOC Research Team. I am also on the Advisory Council of Beni American University in Nigeria. I continue to work with the MSc in Elearning team at the University of Edinburgh on several projects, all of which are listed in the Research page of this blog. I collaborate often with Finnish colleagues on several projects related to mobile learning.
Previously, I was the Education & Outreach Manager, Research & Learning Environments at a very large academic database. In this capacity, I focused on the creation of scholarly networks of activity surrounding the sciences. I also conducted much of our organization’s social media presence. Formerly, I worked for Aluka, a not-for-profit digital library of scholarly materials by and about Africa. In that capacity, I worked quite in Africa conducting workshops on information literacy and online research.
I have a background in education, having worked as a teacher for many years both in the United States and Korea. I have a Masters in Library and Information Science degree (MLIS), with a concentration in the management of digital information. I also have a Masters in Education (elearning) at the University of Edinburgh.
