I have worked in eLearning for over 12 years, and in IT and computing for over 22 years.
I began my career at the Workers Education Association, the largest provider of Adult education in the UK, as a support analyst before moving up to a Senior Support Analyst, involved in building networks and providing helpdesk support. I then moved on to work as a Learning Technologies officer for Coventry University London Campus, and then a Virtual Learning Environment Manager during my 4 years at the Royal Veterinary College.
Presently, I am the Electronic Resources Manager at the Institute of Dentistry at Queen Mary University in London, England.
I have managed multiple eLearning projects throughout my wide and varied career, including a college wide migration from Blackboard to Moodle, creating new undergraduate online courses, managing Virtual Learning Environments, Creating e-learning content, Moodle training, learning design including MOOCs and SPOCs and pedagogical design of online courses.
I frequently identify and assess relevant learning technologies to extend and support teaching and learning, and plan and manage the integration of such technologies into the curriculum and into teaching practice.
I have regularly, throughout my career, designed and implemented a range of training, including student inductions, large scale teacher training, online training and individual training.
I am always interested in any Moodle or eLearning consultancy work - if you require this sort of service, please let me know, or visit my website.
In my spare time, I enjoy watching Football - I am a Chelsea fan, entering online competitions, playing with my cat Daisy (she makes a guest appearance in my courses!) and going out to the pub with my friends.
