I joined the OU in September 2008 working as a Regional Coordinator on Openings in the Centre for Widening Participation based in East Grinstead (R13). Since the closure of the region I have worked as on Access as a Presentation Manager, supporting the Head of Curriculum; as a Senior Manager in AL Support and Professional Development. Currently I work supporting students and ALs on the Open Programme as a Manager, Communications and Engagement. I am an AL on Y032, People, work and society and I have also tutored on DD101/DD102. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Fellow of the Staff and Educational Development Association.
Before joining the OU I worked in a local Further Education College as the Head of Teacher Training and Access for several years and prior to that, I worked in industry in training and management development.
I'm particularly interested in scholarship teaching and learning online and by distance and multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary studies.
