About: I stood down from my half-time job with ALT in May 2012, but doing a bit of work to support ALT in this year's use of CrowdVine. I am carrying on with the parallel role I always had as an independent consultant.

Prior to joining ALT in 2002 I spent six years as Learning Technology Development Manager at the Sheffield College, where I am now actively involved as one of two Vice-Chairs of the Governing Body.

I am currently training to be a voluntary advisor in a Citizens' Advice Bureaux, and I am a member of the Teaching Schools New Technology Advisory Board established to support the new network of teaching schools to deliver ICT and Computer Science in initial teacher education and training.

Professional role Independent consultant

Interests The public domain, nordic skiing, learning to play piano, haymaking

Rich Goodman - Rich. Worth liaising informally about PK sessions. I've had the "pleasure" of preparing one so I have gained a feel for what it may be like from the presenter's end. Seb
