I am an ELT Project Officer for Online Learning.
I have been a member of CELT since April 2017; however, I have been working with distance learning students at De Montfort University for over twenty-five years. The Distance Learning team were previously based in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, but as part of CELT, we supported all faculties with distance learning.
I enjoy designing e-learning resources and I have collaborated on many projects in the development of online training/courses. My interests include enhanced learning and technology, distance and online learning, and creative technologies.
I have a Masters of Arts in Online and Distance Education with the Open University. I also hold a Masters of Arts in Creative Technologies, which is a transdisciplinary course that includes the arts, humanities, technology and science disciplines.
I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
Since joining CELT, I have contributed to the following conference paper:
