Dr Christine Redman completed her PhD research in 2004. It was awarded a University of Melbourne prize for excellence. It examined the place of technologies as a mediator of science ideas, and analysed the meaning-making processes employed by people. The PhD thesis used a refinement of Harré's Positioning Theory and Foucault's Technologies of Self as methodologies to better understand the learning processes and the place of the person in an institutional setting. Christine's research approaches seek to better make sense of the relationship of the lived place of the person to structure, agency and the material world. This methodological approach values discursive practices as indicators of a person's phenomenological hermeneutic and their ontology of their lived place. The use of technologies as effective mediators for communication is an area currently being researched for its contribution to enhanced understandings of science concepts.
