Here is my trading card for IEH 2023.

I am Nada, a lecturer in Educational Technology at IAU university in Saudi Arabia. I recently passed my PhD viva in Digital Education from Edinburgh University.

I am passionate about spaces and sociomateriality in the online education context. My PhD thesis is about Spaces, materials and Gift giving in the MOOC context. In my research, I examined MOOC teacher experience in Saudi Arabia and explored how spaces of WAQF and ZAKAT (Forms of gifting in the Islamic religion)  were formed through MOOC teaching and assemblages of materials, humans, and digital technology.

The header image shows a popular flower where I live that is called Bougainvillea. I took this image this morning while I was walking to the office. For me, this flower represents beauty, resilience and adaptability.
