Dr. Nick Kelly Research

I am an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Creative Industries, Education, and Social Justice at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). I am an interdisciplinary scholar, focused on the intersection of design and teacher education. My theoretical research contributes to design cognition, design thinking, interaction design, and design of learning networks. My applied research looks at secondary teacher education, higher education, networks of teachers, web design for social justice, and co-design as a research method. I have published a wide range of journal papers, books, chapters, conference papers, and public work on these themes.

This site is a place to share research, presentations, teaching, data, scripts, and ideas online. If you want to read my published work then I recommend Google Scholar for the most up-to-date collection. You can also find my articles in QUT eprints, USQ eprints, ORCID and SCOPUS.

Please contact me through my QUT home page.

Dr Nick Kelly, QUT Senior Lecturer in Interaction Design, has worked on a collaboration with UQ and helped develop an app which identifies endangered species in every elctorate available before the 2022 Federal election.
