Lee Fallin

Academic & Library Specialist

University of Hull




Lee Fallin works as a learning developer at the University of Hull where he supports students and staff to develop their academic, digital, information and visual literacies. His research interests focus on the intersections between education and geography, inclusive of physical and digital spaces. As a learning developer, he is also interested in researching student learning practices in higher education and how they can be supported.

Lee’s thesis focused on the Brynmor Jones Library as a case study of neoliberalism in higher education and the impact on library services. His current research interests include library purpose, learning development, digital capabilities, learning spaces, research methodologies and geographies of place.

He is an NVivo Certified Expert and is happy to support individuals and teams in qualitative methodologies and the use of NVivo for qualitative analysis. He is particularly familiar with the work of Lefebvre and Soja, having used them extensively in his thesis.
