|Title:||Learning Technology Officer|
My role as Faculty Learning Technology Officer involves providing specialist advice and support to promote technology enhanced learning and encourage the adoption of related pedagogies. This includes delivering resources and staff development opportunities that meet the requirements of Faculty staff, working alongside colleagues to plan initiatives that have a demonstrable impact in relation to TEL.
I hold a BA (Hons) in Media, Communications and Culture and Music Technology from Keele University, graduating in 2006. More recently, I received an MA in I.T. in Education (Distinction) from the University of Birmingham, with my research dissertation focusing on the support of academic staff in relation to learning technology. In 2014, I gained Certified Member status to the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT) and Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), becoming an assessor and mentor for both schemes.
