I have worked in inclusive learning support and development contexts since 1993, initially in primary and secondary school settings before entering higher education in 2008 working with neurodiverse learners at the University of Glasgow. In 2012, I was involved with creation of a study skills service at the University of Strathclyde (now Learner Development Services), where I current deliver 1-2-1 appointments, induction and widening participation activities, workshops, and create online resources as well as working collaboratively with academic and university services colleagues to facilitate the development of academic literacies.

How can I help learning developers?

I would be happy to offer support to colleagues who wish to develop more inclusive working practices and resources, particularly with regard to supporting learners who may encounter barriers to learning through socioeconomic, geographic, disability, or health and wellbeing related factors. I also have an active interest in supporting qualitative LD research methods, professional development, and peer support and professional learning.
