Academic, designer and learning design researcher

Jolanda Morkel


Jolanda Morkel is passionate about all things design: environments, experiences and artefacts. She’s a registered architect and senior lecturer in the Department of Architectural Technology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) in Cape Town, South Africa, where she teaches design in the undergraduate architecture studio, offered through a university-industry collaboration with OpenArchitecture. Her focus is on the design and facilitation of flexible and blended learning environments for culturally diverse and non-traditional students and technology-mediated learning experiences including simulated tutor apps, QR codes and digital storytelling. Her current doctoral research explores the synchronous online student-tutor conversation. She regularly publishes, presents at conferences and enjoys sketchnoting and facilitating workshops in learning design.
