Catherine Cronin

I'm an open educator and researcher based in Galway, Ireland. I've been a lecturer (an awful job title!) and academic coordinator of online IT programmes here at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) for the past 10 years. On December 1st I began a 3-year career break to focus full-time on my PhD research in the area of open education and digital identity/ies.

I wandered from New York City to Ireland many years ago; have studied and worked in engineering, IT, women's studies and education; and have worked in community education and the tech industry as well as HE. I'm happy crossing borders and boundaries.

Here is my Journal for December. I hang out a lot on Twitter @catherinecronin and on my blog .
