Dr Linhao Fang


I had an academic background in E-learning systems and their design and evaluation. My doctoral thesis explored students’ self-regulation behaviour and sought effective enabling intervention via technological means.

I used a Design Science (IS) approach in my PhD and a few other research projects that I worked in. The multidisciplinary nature of Design Science has extended my academic interests to a range of topics including educational psychology/technology, Human-Computer Interaction, Digital Innovation and Transformation, and a little in Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing thanks to a recent business advisory opportunity.
