Harvey Mellar first worked as a consultant with H2 Learning in 2013 and has since worked on a number of H2 Learning projects.
In the distant past, Harvey worked for 12-years as a teacher of mathematics and computing in schools and further education colleges, before completing a PhD in educational computing and then joining the University College London Institute of Education (IoE) in 1986. Whilst at the IoE, he taught courses related to the use of technology in education in the initial teacher training, professional development and Masters programmes, including teaching on one the UK’s earliest (1992) fully online courses and he was also responsible for coordinating the initial implementation of eLearning across the IoE. Harvey also supervised research students working in the field of eLearning and directed and participated in many national and international (principally European and Latin American) research and development projects. His research included work on: computer based simulation and modelling for learning; formative and summative e-assessment; design patterns for teaching and learning with technology; ICT and adult literacy and numeracy; embedding eLearning in schools, colleges and higher education; and quality assurance and enhancement for eLearning in higher education.
Harvey retired from the IoE in 2010 and he has a continuing involvement with the institution through his role as an Emeritus Reader in Technology Enhanced Learning at UCL. In recent years, besides working with H2 Learning, Harvey has worked as a private consultant on a range of EU projects (funded by Horizon 2020, Erasmus, and European Structural and Investment Funds) and carried out smaller consultancies for a number of organisations including various UK universities, TSL and Amnesty International.
