I’m an experienced professional, and have been working in the digital education and teaching space for over ten years. I work for Durham University as a Senior Digital Learning Developer.
I hold an MA in Digital Technologies, Communication and Education from Manchester University, and am an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy (now Advance HE). I’m also a PhD student at Durham University.
What do I do?
Interactive learning design
I use tools such as Articulate Storyline and Rise to create interactive learning – including presentation elements, interactions, quizzing, activities and experiences.
Combined with LMS elements, these can provide accessible and trackable chunks of learning.
Creative media and technical skills
My educational experienced is balanced with both creative and technical abilities.
Combining graphic design, illustration, video editing, audio and motion graphics using industry-standard tools allows me to produce a wide variety of content.
I am also experienced in HTML and CSS editing to ensure web content and LMS look and feel can be well-presented and customised.
Digital learning transition
I work with subject matter experts and professionals to transition their teaching and materials to online delivery methods.
My MA in Digital Technologies, Communication and Education from the University of Manchester has provided me with a thorough grounding in the integration of technology with learning design. In 2021, I achieved FHEA status with Advance HE.
Digital Storytelling for Learning
Story is at the heart of human experience, and is one of the most important ways we share and learn. Incorporating storytelling into learning can result in memorable, effective and delightful experiences for learners, and really bring scenarios, case studies and practice examples to life.
