I am head of learning and teaching transformation in higher education and research. My team and I support universities with their digital transformation agenda. This includes the supporting the use of the framework for digital transformation in higher education and the development of a maturity model for digital transformation. Other activities in my portfolio include projects exploring future trends for assessment and feedback, researching international students' digital experiences and supporting staff with designing learning for beyond blended.


I have worked for Jisc for 19 years and during this time have led large transformation programmes on curriculum design, staff and students digital capabilities and learners’ experiences of technology. I established Jisc's student experience experts group, an active community which provides valuable consultation and dissemination opportunities for Jisc. I continue to champion Jisc’s change agents’ network to support staff-student partnerships. I am a Certified Member of the Association of Learning Technology (CMALT).
