About: I've been working at the University of Reading for just over six years now. Day to day, I provide support for academics using any and all aspects of our Blackboard VLE (we are on v9.1 SP6 currently). I've been heavily involved in trying to develop and enhance the e-portfolio tool (also in Blackboard) here at Reading and am now taking a Masters-level research degree into using technology for aiding reflection. If you want to know more or think we share a common interest, please get in touch.

Professional role Learning technologist

Organisation, if you have one University of Reading

Interests Philosophy; the question/problem of free will; reflection and meta-cognition; good books (American literature in particular); engineering and maths; art; 20th century history (in particular the Cold War); the abyss between the arts and the sciences, between self and world, between first- and third- person...; various attempts to bridge that abyss. I'm also interested in politics, football, music and the Italian language but more as a casual observer/listener these days... Poetry and coding as structured ways of addressing very different problems using language.

Will ALT-C 2012 be your first ALT conference? No
