Dr Sue Cranmer

Formerly at Lancaster University

Research overview

My main interests are in digital technologies, social justice and in/equality. In particular, my work focusses on challenging inequalities that manifest and are reproduced in everyday uses of digital technologies. My book, Disabled Children and Digital Technologies. Learning in the Context of Inclusive Education for Bloomsbury published November 2020, sits at the intersection of disability studies and digital education. It explores how disabled children's uses of digital technologies can potentially benefit learning whilst recognising that technology can also act as a barrier to inclusion. Previous projects have included research into digital inclusion and innovation, digital pedagogy, inclusive pedagogical design and digital literacy including online safety.


PhD supervision

I am interested in receiving PhD proposals related to digital technologies, education, learning and social justice. I'm particularly interested in digital inclusion; disability; accessibility; everyday uses of digital technologies; digital pedagogy, digital innovation, digital literacy and online safety.

Current Teaching

I lead the MA in Education and Social Justice and module ED.S831 Education, Evaluation and Research. I am also a core member of the PhD E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Programme team. In addition, I supervise doctoral students on Part 2 of the PhD in TEL and Education and Social Justice programmes.


Career Details
