I am currently working as a Technology Enhanced Learning Advisor at York St John University.
My focus is to strategically develop the use of the institutional
e-Portfolio system (Mahara) by engaging and communicating with key
stakeholders, offering advice, consultancy and support. Working to the
Learning & Teaching Development annual objectives and the TEL
Quality Framework, I pro-actively support and develop staff in their use
of e-Portfolio technology to enhance the student learning experience.
I also work as a part-time Adult Education Tutor (IT) for City
of York Council Adult and Community Education Service, teaching Web Page
Creation (using Adobe Dreamweaver), and as a part-time Tutor
(IT) at York
College, teaching Introductory Web Page Design, and am a Member of the Institute
for Learning (MIfL).
I'm also studying for an MSc in 'Technology Enhanced Learning, Innovation and Change' at Sheffield Hallam University.
As a learning & development professional my primary focus is
delivering e-learning training to staff using a blended approach to
training delivery, including face-to-face classroom training, one-to-one
e-coaching, self-help material, screencasting, e-learning, social
media, and live online delivery (webinars).
I have experience in delivering training on Learning Technologies,
Virtual Learning Environments, Screencasting, Online Delivery Tools,
Content Management Systems, e-Portfolios, Adobe Dreamweaver, Microsoft
Office, HTML & CSS, and ECDL amongst other things.
