I joined the Public Health section of ScHARR in February 2011 as a Learning Technologist.
Previously I have worked at the University of Salford as a Learning Technology Adviser based in a central Learning Development Unit but with responsibility for supporting and advising teaching and administrative staff from the Faculty of Health and Social Care in areas relating to technology enhanced learning.
Prior to that I worked at Sheffield Hallam University as a Senior Learning Technologist for the Centre for Interprofessional e-learning (CIPeL) which was a HEFCE-funded Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning working collaboratively with staff from the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing (and beyond) creating blended learning solutions to problems relating to the delivery of undergraduate inter-professional education.
I have also worked on short term e-learning related contracts at this University´s School of Nursing and Midwifery and Department of Education.
Before I became involved in Higher Education, my career path featured spells in the web design and video games industries.
I am particularly interested in how technology can be used to assist in the design and delivery of teaching, learning and assessment. I also have a keen interest in web accessibility and usability. I am involved in using and evaluating new technologies and have experience in learning object development and online and offline resource creation.
One of my ongoing aims is to `upskill´ and educate staff in the use of educational technologies to help enhance their areas of teaching practice through bespoke staff development sessions and one-to-one support and advice.
