This blog is a random collection of thoughts and experiences on a variety of areas linked to teaching and learning.
I graduated with a BA in History and Politics and an MA in Russian and East European Studies in 2001. Whilst debating on what career to undertake I successfully completed a PG Diploma in Museum Studies and had an internship at a London Museum. This was followed by a fun time working with schools on various arts projects – and finally I stumbled across a career in Libraries. This career began within the health sector but I soon returned to Higher education working in an academic library in various roles. More recently I worked on a number of innovative projects including new approaches to information skills and e-learning developments. Several years ago I successfully completed my MSc in Information Management and became a chartered Librarian.
After 5 years within the Academic Library world I changed direction and my current role is as a Learning and Development Advisor working with staff who have a responsibility for teaching and learning – supporting their academic and professional development. Areas of interest include the creative use of technology and space to support teaching and learning.
