About Me

I am a Learning Technologist at Cranfield University, based at the Defence Academy for the UK. prior to this I worked at Southampton Solent University where I spent years working with the Learning Technologies team.

I am curious by nature and intuitive when it comes to problem solving and using technology. I have fostered a very imaginative and creative approach to my work through years of studying and working in the performing arts world and would very much describe myself as a lifelong learner who is keen to share anything new with my peers and network.

My main areas of expertise include the use of Mahara and Moodle in education as well as using Turnitin as a tool to improve academic writing. Prior to my current post I was an eLearning Support Officer supporting our staff in how to use our Virtual Learning Environment to make their courses more 'blended' and writing online 'help guides' and hand-outs for students.

I have also spent a year working in Solent's Recruitment Access and Partnerships team compiling research and data reports based on Widening Participation and Education Liaison activities carried out by the University and across the UK.
