Sam Thomas

Award: CeP (2019)


I am a Learning Development Tutor at the University of Northampton. Prior to this I worked in academic and public libraries in a range of professional roles, including reader development, teaching digital literacy, and faculty liaison. Throughout my career my focus has been on providing support and services to those with additional needs, such as improving the accessibility of online resources, and supporting the needs of large cohorts of distance learners. My current research interests include the role of language in teaching and learning, and investigating how to best support top-up students.

How can I support Learning Developers?

I am happy to support or mentor other Learning Developers in LD theory and practice generally, and in my specific areas of expertise: accessibility and inclusion, information literacy and technology enhanced learning.

Subject categories I advise on: Inclusivity and Differentiation, Information Literacy, Technology Enhanced Learning
