A qualified teacher, PhD student, Microsoft Innovative Educator and Apple Teacher, I am passionate about digital developments, aiming to using technology in creative and innovative ways. With a background in teaching and educational development, I am highly interested in enhancing digital skills and implementing new technologies that will benefit teaching and learning and streamline system approaches. Currently FM Systems Manager at Edge Hill University.

Passionate about professional development and scholarship I am currently undertaking a PhD in E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning at Lancaster University. I am a Certified Practitioner (CeP) of Learning Development by the Association for Learning Development in Higher Education (ALDinHE), a Fellow of AdvanceHE (FHEA) and a SOLSTICE Fellow at Edge Hill University.

How can I help Learning Developers?

As an early-career Learning Developer, I would love to collaborate and support fellow LDers across the sector.

I can support fellow LDers who are interested in:

- technology enhanced learning (TEL)
- redesigning and developing new staff development pathways
- enhancing staff’s digital skills and confidence levels
- integrating technologies to support online learning and teaching methods for students

I am also a SOLSTICE Fellow and my current project is focused on developing e-learning staff development packages. I would be happy to share my experiences of designing, developing and disseminating e-learning packages which are focused on upskilling staff’s digital skills, digital proficiency and confidence.
