Dr Murat Oztok

Research overview

In broader terms, my research interests concern sociology of knowledge and digital education, with a theoretical and practical commitment to social justice. My research explores what learning means in the digital age and analyses collective pedagogies in digital spaces. Currently, I am interested in "educational futures" as a research domain. I move away from studying what technology do for us and explore what technology do to us. I believe that without understanding how social, political, economic, and historical Discourses manifest themselves in social interactions, we cannot understand why and how the way that we learn is transformed by digital technologies.


PhD supervision

I have a broad range of academic interests, spanning the domains of psychology, sociology, cultural studies, and sociocultural learning theories. I am interested in works aiming to support marginalized or alienated individuals in collaborative work and provide them opportunities to become an equal co-learner.
