|Location:||Kedleston Road B111/112|
In my current role I support the use of e-Learning materials and systems. This largely involves research into current trends and systems for enhancing learning and teaching as well as assessment, informing adoption of new systems and improvement of existing ones. The role also includes development and training. For example, I train staff members in the use of TurningPoint Voting System - an interactive group response system that enlivens learning and teaching sessions.
Since joining the University in December 2006, I have gained lots of skills working in various roles including Interactive Assessment Developer, e-Learning Developer and lecturer in Access/Foundation IT during 2012/2013 academic year (I already had nearly five years secondary school teaching experience). I have also gained some certifications and qualifications including Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCert HE), Fellow of Higher Education Academy (FHEA) and Certified Member of Association for Learning Technology (CMALT), plus a PhD.
Clearly influenced by my work, my PhD was on Flexible e-Assessment Inspired by Design Methodology Management. My interdisciplinary thesis meshes e-Learning/e-Assessment, Software Design and Development and Framework Technology. I have written various papers for conference presentations and journal publications.
