Biography

My work within CAPE is mainly around the use of our core University learning systems: Blackboard, Turnitin and PebblePad. I deliver training and coaching for individuals and teams who are dabbling with technology for the first time; experimenting with something new or just trying to make their teaching more innovating using technology.

I am the primary contact for PebblePad within the University and am excited about its many and varied uses. Use of the system to support student engagement and apprenticeships is increasing year on year which is very encouraging for our digital skills agenda. I am often asked to speak at national conferences on the use of learning technology and enjoy show casing the collaborative work between CAPE and academic teams with learning technology.

Outside of work, I am an injured ironman triathlete who has now started samba drumming: life is never dull. I am passionate about working in CAPE to further the digital skills in our staff and students.
