Technology Enhanced Learning Officer

I joined the Centre for Academic Practice at Loughborough University in May 2017 as a Technology Enhanced Learning Officer. Prior to this, I was working at The University of Warwick as an Academic Technology Officer and, similarly to my role at Loughborough, this involved supporting academic staff in using technology to enhance their teaching practice.

I am passionate about learning design and delivery and I have worked in Learning and Development in a variety of industries including financial services and the Police.

My current interests are around best practice in using webinar technology for teaching and learning and supporting students and staff to develop video based project work.

I am the primary support contact for the following Schools:

  • Social, Political and Geographical Sciences
  • Arts, English and Drama
