How can I support Learning Developers?

I have a background in education, social science, social work and nursing enabling me to work multi- and inter-disciplinary. I am passionate about learning and teaching methods that empowers students and thus I have a strong interest in widening participation, student wellbeing, peer learning, creativity/play and academic literacies. I would be very happy to support/share best practice in any of these areas. I am also interested in conferences/workshops that focus on learning development – and collaborative writing projects that promote the idea of “writing to learn”.

Subject categories I advise on: Academic Literacy (Reading and Writing), Assessment, Feedback and Course Design, Peer Assisted Learning and Mentoring, Playful and Creative Learning
