Dai Griffiths


is Professor of Education at the University of Bolton, and an Associate Member of Cetis LLP. He spent the first part of his career working as a teacher in primary, secondary and higher education, as well as in interpersonal skills training in industry, before becoming fascinated by the potential of computers in education. For the past twenty-five years he has worked as an educational technology researcher, principally at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and the University of Bolton. In his research he seeks an understanding of education by bringing together the areas of pedagogy, technology and organisational structure, inspired by literature from the Cybernetics tradition. Over the past fifteen years a particular concern has been the development, use and implications of interoperability specifications for eLearning. In the course of this work he has been actively engaged in the design, development and use of learning design applications, and in studying the potential and reality of the use of data in educational processes, with a particular focus on the use of xAPI.
