Bio As a key member of a Technology Enhanced Learning Department, my development skills have matured to incorporate the pedagogical requirements and alignment in eLearning and online teaching. With a primary focus on implementing knowledge and design skills to reusable eLearning objects and bespoke eLearning packages; my scope includes supporting theories and practice with active research. Supported by Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching in Higher Education (PGCTHE) and Masters in Web Development, I apply the current evolution in technologies to construct and enhance interactive eLearning teaching and the online environment in which it is presented. My role continues to engage collaboratively with the academic teams to develop new methods and implementations which directly enhance and innovate the student learning experience, having a positive impact on teaching and learning and inspiring academics to engage with technology to enhance their teaching. By actively networking and liaising with colleagues within Faculties across the institution I have sought to inspire individuals to adopt new practices and also to engage in knowledge transfer via the sharing of good practice.
