About me

I joined UWE in 2016 as an e-Learning Technology Officer in the Learning Innovation Unit (Faculty of Environment and Technology) and started my current role as a Senior Learning Technologist in the Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education in February 2021. Prior to joining UWE, I worked at the Open University for 6 years and going back further, I also completed my BSc in International Studies with the Open University.

I completed a PG Certificate in Online and Distance Education in 2017 and I obtained a Certificate in Training Practice (CIPD) in 2007.

In my time at UWE I have worked with a variety of learning technologies such as Blackboard, Blackboard Collaborate, Panopto, Xerte, MS Teams, Dewis and Padlet. I have also worked extensively with formative and summative online exams as well as supporting the distance learning provision at UWE. Externally, I co-lead the international Blackboard MoCo (Mobile and Collaborate) user group.

I am interested in learning design, accessibility and keeping up with the innovations in technology which may prove useful for teaching and learning. 

Area of expertise

Blackboard, Blackboard Collaborate, Panopto, Dewis, Mentimeter, MS Teams, Padlet and more.
