About me

I began my present role in February 2017, but I joined the E-Learning Development Team in March 2016 as an E-Learning Support Officer. Prior to which, I interned with the Learning Technology Support Unit at The University of Huddersfield’s school of Human and Health Sciences. I have specific research interest in student learning with Lecture Capture, and a professional interest in the Flipped Classroom through the medium of Video, Electronic Voting Systems, and facilitating active learning. My academic background is in Music Technology, and my non-professional interests include Music Composition, Photography and Creative Writing.
