About: Based in the Research Office, but part of an e-Learning Team now relocated in the Teaching Centre from the Library, I work at supporting the process and people behind our research staff development activities, using e-learning tools and techniques (spot the conundrum...).

I'm also working on supporting the Research Office's wider activities in a similar way. It's a relatively new post, so there's a bit of effort involved in working out what's needed and by whom, via what technology and using which skills.

Here to build up my network and be inspired.

BTW, I help steward (?) a few technologies at Loughborough - Turningpoint EVS, BOS surveys, use of video - and have a soft spot for screencasting (Camtasia on PC, still wondering between Camtasia and Screenflow on the Mac).

Otherwise, give me a bike and some hilly singletrack and I'm happy.
