Digital Education Officer
I am a Digital Education Officer and School Partner for the School of Geography and Planning. I support the use of learning technology in the school, providing advice and guidance to academic and professional services staff about pedagogy and blended learning tools, including Learning Central, e-assessments, Panopto, Mentimeter and Padlet. I also support the use of geographical information software and urban design tools such as QGIS, SketchUp and the Adobe creative suite.

I began my learning technology career in 2013, as Learning Designer at a digital skills charity, where I build courses and resources to support vulnerable people in using the internet. Since then, I have worked at the University of Bristol as an Online and Blended Learning Designer, where I designed and built a series of FutureLearn courses around the themes of sustainability, global connection and enterprise. In 2018, I moved to Cardiff University where I was a Learning Technologist in the School of Social Sciences, working across the school to develop and support the use of learning technology. I then worked at the Open University, where I led on the university’s involvement in a HEFCW funded FE/HE collaboration project, before moving back to Cardiff University to support the use of learning technology, software and graphics in the School of Geography and Planning.
