Pip Hardy, one of the founders of the Patient Voices programme, has ongoing research interests in digital storytelling, open, distance and e-learning, and the use of digital storytelling in health and social care.
Pip began a PhD in Human learning at Brunel University, but family commitments meant it had to be shelved. In 2007 she completed, with distinction, her MSc in Lifelong Learning at the University of Ulster. She is currently considering how and where to take her work forward. Her Masters thesis 'An investigation into the application of the Patient Voices digital stories in healthcare education: quality of learning, policy impact and practice-based value' brings together many long-considered strands of thought.
Pip's Masters thesis and other papers and articles relating to the Patient Voices programme and digital story-telling are available from the links at left.
Papers and articles on other subjects, such as open and distance learning, counselling and buddhism, are available from the Pilgrim Projects website or from the 'Resources' tab above.
