About: Sal came to the JISC TechDis Service from a very wide background in Technology Enhanced Learning including the embedding of ICT, ILT and e-learning.

Having worked in industry and returning to teach in Schools and Colleges of Further Education and the University Sector, Sal was seconded in the early 1980s to work as the Curriculum Development Officer responsible for the integration of IT in post-16 education in Yorkshire and the Humber. From this post Sal was further seconded to various national agencies such as Ferl, Becta, JISC and the then Department for Education and Skills, working on the e-learning programmes and the Harnessing Technology Strategy.

Sal’s vision for the Service which is shared passionately by her team, is to ensure that the focus and direction of JISC TechDis remains being the pragmatic voice of inclusion, accessibility in the innovative use of technologies to support learning and teaching across the Education Sectors across the UK
Recently Sal has been delighted to steer the Service to becoming central to many of the large national initiatives to raise the standards of teaching in both FE and Skills and the HE sectors.

Sal has also taken the lead in ensuring the JISC TechDis is thought integral to the world of work, employability and Business and Community Engagement programmes, work Based learning, recently lead by JISC.
