Technology & Teaching

// work

I specialise in producing a wide range of interactive, engaging and visually stimulating learning support tools and websites for both distance and blended learning courses. I have worked for a wide range of clients from multinational pharmaceutical companies, charities, schools and higher education institutions.

Currently I am working as part of a team developing language learning programmes both for in-house use by the Language Centre at Cambridge University and also for externally funded projects.

I possess extensive experience and knowledge with which to design and develop innovative e-Learning content. I have programming, design and management expertise for delivering web, mobile and desktop applications.

Recently to support language learning the Language Centre is making a range of its language learning resources available as open courseware under the Creative Commons Licence. Most of these resources were initially developed for the language courses run as part of the Cambridge University Language Programme (CULP). The materials were designed for use in a blended learning environment combining ICT-based learning with face-to-face learning in the classroom. The resources can be used for self-study but for their most effective use they will benefit from a learning environment with some face-to-face contact. We hope to make further resources available as open courseware in the near future.

Language Centre's Responsive Learning Object Templates

As part of my continuing role to review and implement the Language Centre's e‐learning strategy, I have been researching various front-end frameworks to use for implementing our on-line learning resources, and ensuring our Open Educational Resources released under the Creative Commons Licence are adapted for use on multiple platforms including increasingly popular mobile devices.

The online learning projects at the Language Centre have been underpinned by solid research and pedagogical principles. During the development process, consideration of the learners' needs is always pivotal for every language programme. This enables the reinforcement of learners motivation and performance.
