How can I help Learning Developers?
I am happy to advise teams on how to go about setting up their own social learning space. This may include training their mentoring team, daily operations and strategies, managing budgets and evaluation of these projects. I am also happy to support the development of small scale research projects around social learning/space/academic literacies.
