Research overview

Phil Moffitt is a Lecturer in the Department of Educational Research, Lancaster University. He specialises in TEL with STEM practitioners. Phil is a chartered engineer, facilities manager, and UX ergonomist with research interests in qualitative enquiry and interventionist research in sociotechnical activity, enabling people to collectively confront sub-optimal work and learning, facing contingent and unforeseen challenges for work and learning.

PhD supervision

I am interested in PhD supervision with researchers examining technology enhanced learning, notably where technologies mediate learning in practice settings for STEM fields. I specialise in phenomenographic and activity theoretical research in FE, HE, VET, workplace, and informal learning.


Phil is currently researching the mediating role of technologies for social development, organisational change, and vocational practice in TVET, FE, and HE for STEM practitioners involved in post-conflict reconstruction and disaster relief, where the requirement and opportunity for TEL is often only identified at the time and place of need. His projects are being undertaken through phenomenographic and activity theoretical approaches (the latter using the Change Laboratory methodology) with dispersed teams in geographically distal settings. He undertakes voluntary activities as a coach and mentor with those who are disengaged from education. Phil is an alumnus of the doctoral programme in e-research and TEL, with Lancaster University’s Department of Educational Research.
