In the subject specialist team we help learning providers who want to develop and improve their digital delivery.

We work together to find solutions by facilitating workshops, and sharing best practice and advice and guidance. We also take part in national conferences and events, briefings and webinars, and specialist forums.

My specialist areas are digital literacy, learning and teaching, employability, building and supporting communities of practice and developing digital learning experiences.
