Biography

I joined ScHARR as a Learning Technologist in May 2012.  Prior to this I worked in the Learning Technologies Team (CiCS) as a VLE Project Implementation Officer and was very involved in the move from MOLE to MOLE 2.

I also worked at Sheffield Hallam University for four years before joining the University of Sheffield, assisting with distance learning, multimedia, graphic design, audio visual projects and the website.

My main interest is in technology enhanced learning; computers have become an integral part of the lives of us and our students and can add to the learning experience in just about any field, and the possibilities and expectations that technology brings change so frequently that it stays lively.
