Gavin’s Blog



I’m Gavin Duffy, a PhD student and member of the Platform Pedagogies group, as well as being generally in charge of maintaining this website. On this section of the website, I’ll be detailing the, hopefully numerous, things we’ve done as a group in a digestible manner.

If you have any questions in general regarding the website, the project, or anything else which is related, feel free to contact me at: and I will get back to you as soon as I see it.
