About me

My current role is e-Learning Technology Officer in FET's Learning Innovation Unit where I am mainly working with DEWIS and supporting lecturers with webinar technology as well as distance learning related issues.  

I joined UWE after having worked at the Open University for 6 years, and have a well-developed understanding of many of the issues distance learners face during their studies.. I also completed my BSc in International Studies at the Open University before I started working for them, so have been a part of the distance learning scene since 2003. Part of my previous role at the OU was to support students and staff using the technologies required by the OU as well as train all new staff on systems and procedures.

My work experience prior to the HE sector is wide and varied with roles in both the public and private sector, however there is a common thread of training as part of my previous roles. Besides my BSc, I also have a Certificate in Training Practice (CIPD),  and am currently working towards an MA in Online and Distance Learning at the Open University.​

I am interested in all aspects of learning, and particularly how technology can be used to enhance the learning experience. ​
