I am a Learning Technologist at Queen’s University Belfast, wandering around the labyrinth of education generally enjoying getting lost and exploring my way through.
My professional journey has involved a Pharmacology degree from the University of Edinburgh, a Masters in Computer Based Learning from Queen’s and a Diploma from the University of Edinburgh on Digital Education. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and proud CMALT holder and assessor. My education journey continues with a PhD at the University of Edinburgh in autumn 2018.
I have been supporting undergraduate medicine for a decade and I am mainly found to be nagging anyone who will listen into giving online presence more attention – bringing the human to the digital. Design and usability are also on my priority list, along with trying to squeeze some creativity into our busy lives. Outside medicine, I am on open education practitioner and online communities such as #clmooc and #ds106 provide a backdrop of fun for my professional work.
