Dr Jon Mason is an Associate Professor in Education in the College of Indigenous Futures, Education at Charles Darwin University (CDU), where he lectures in the broad area of digital technology in education. He first joined CDU in 2012 as Director of e-Learning for the Centre for School Leadership, Learning and Development after pursuing an earlier career at the nexus of government digital services, education, and international standardization. Among his academic roles as a lecturer and researcher at CDU he is also a member of the newly formed NT Academic Centre for Cyber Security and Innovation. With a longstanding interest in international collaboration, he also holds adjunct positions at Korea National Open University and East China Normal University. Since 2000 he has led delegations from Standards Australia to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC36 and in 2022 became chair for this international committee. He is an elected member of the Executive Committee of the Asia Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) and is vice-chair of the NT Branch of the Australian Computer Society. He serves on several journal editorial boards and has performed editorial roles for international projects and books. His research encompasses most things where digital technology and learning intersect while also pursuing a keen interest in question formulation, sense-making, and the role of wisdom in education.
I have a broad range of research interests and while most involve innovations in digital technology not all them do. For example, I am also very interested in the relationship between inquiry and the development of wisdom -- and during 2019-2020 I am part of a team researching how 'local wisdom' might inform the development of future curricula in school education. Another example is "open educational practices". While this term is often associated with many 'open' Internet trends (open source, open access, open educational resources, MOOCs, etc) 'openness' is being applied in other domains such as assessment, teaching, and peer review.
