Digital student blog


I am taking forward the outcomes of learning and teaching reimagined and supporting universities with their digital transformation of learning, teaching and assessment.


I previously managed the development of the digital experience insights service, which is researching staff and students’ expectations and experiences of the digital environment. I also managed the team that developed the Jisc building digital capability service to support the development of staff and student digital capabilities.

I established the change agents’ network: a national network to support staff-student partnership working on technology enhanced curriculum projects.

I run the Jisc student experience experts group, an active community of practice, which provides valuable consultation and dissemination opportunities for Jisc. I have worked for Jisc for 18 years and during my time here I have led large transformation projects on curriculum design, digital literacies and learners’ experiences of technology.

I've recently been appointed to the Association of Colleges Services board.
