Role

My role is to enhance understanding of the use of technology to support accessibility and inclusion across the further education and skills sector.

I will be offering advice and guidance and practical solutions to Jisc customers and colleagues on using technology to provide greater access to educational opportunity, increased independence for learners and improved retention and achievement; encouraging them to exploit the potential of mobile and personal devices to support differentiation, personalised learning and independent study.

Background

I have been an e-learning advisor for the Jisc Regional Support Centre south west for six years with a responsibility for encouraging inclusive practice.

I am a qualified classroom and online teacher with more than 20 years’ experience in specialist education, as a functional skills and IT teacher.

I have worked as a tutor in ACL, WBL, FE and the Third Sector. Motivated by the responsibility to prepare all learners for an increasingly digital future I was the RSC lead advisor for e-safety.
