I joined the University in 2004 as a Programme Administrator moving to work more centrally with the student record system as a System Administrator until my post within CAPE began in January 2015.

I gained an understanding of the challenges students face first hand when I experienced life at UoC as a part-time student while also working full-time. After achieving my degree on the BSc (Hons) Applied Computing programme I went on to complete the PgC Learning and Teaching for HE focusing on Reusable Learning Objects!

My current role is to support teams and individuals, from validation to final assessment, in the utilisation of UoC learning technologies to enable and enhance student learning. My work within CAPE is definitely varied and has included projects such as Blackboard interface redesign, developing an online Academic Toolkit and working with the 360 camera developing resources centred on our Crime House. I often present at national conferences on the use of learning technologies in a range of disciplines from Health to Humanities.
