I established the change agents’ network: a national network to support staff-student partnership working on curriculum innovation projects. I established and run the Jisc student experience experts group, an active community of practice, which provides valuable consultation and dissemination opportunities for Jisc.

I have managed the production of numerous internationally-acclaimed Jisc publications including:

  • Emerging practice in a digital age
  • Effective assessment in a digital age
  • Effective practice in a digital age
  • Designing spaces for effective learning
  • In their own words

I have worked for Jisc for 14 years and have led large programmes of work on curriculum design, digital literacies and learners’ experiences of technology.
