I have worked in Higher Education since 1994 in a variety of roles. My work has included being involved in the establishment of a central Learning and Teaching Unit in 1998 through to Program Director for post-compulsory Education and Training, at the University of Wales, Newport, which was my final role before leaving the UK in 2013. I have developed and run a Higher Education Academy approved course for academic staff and taught into BA, MA and professionally accredited programs within the field of post-compulsory education in both campus-based and online settings.
My UK experience included acting as an external examiner and advisor to other universities offering programs within my subject area as well as working on national and European funded projects. In addition to Education I have previously worked within IT and originally chemistry as a technician demonstrator.
Since moving to Australia I have worked with the University of Tasmania on curriculum review and quality and standards development and most recently worked as an educational designer at the University of Canberra on projects including curriculum renewal and migration to a new learning management system and associated tools.
I have extensive experience of supporting the development of teaching of staff working in the further and higher education sector including observation of teaching, peer support and mentoring, program and course design, and developing approaches to reflective practice.
In my role at CEIST I am leading a team who are supporting strategic initiatives within the College of Law. CEIST provides support and guidance for Learning and Teaching including designing, implementing and managing projects to support the College's strategic plan.
CEIST is also involved in implementing Technology Enhanced Learning and supporting innovative pedagogic practice
My research interests include asssessment design in relation to academic integrity, and personal philosophies of teaching and learning
