I am a senior co-design manager in the student experience team in the digital futures directorate. I currently manage the digital student project which researches students’ expectations and experiences of the digital environment in further and higher education. I also have responsibility for supporting the Jisc funded Change Agents’ Network - a national network to support staff-student partnership working on technology enhanced curriculum projects.

I also 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’ and ‘In Their Own Words’.

I also established and run our learning and teaching practice experts group, an active community of practice, which provides valuable consultation and dissemination opportunities for Jisc.

I have worked for Jisc for 11 years and have led large programmes of work on curriculum design, digital literacies and learners’ experiences of technology.
