Areas of Expertise

Digital Education | Inclusive Teaching | Information Literacy


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 help 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.
