I am a Digital Learning Manager within the Cardiff Learning and Teaching Academy. I work with academic colleagues to develop online courses through FutureLearn and Blackboard, support academic staff in their pedagogic use of technology, and use learning design techniques to map out the student academic journey through modules and programmes. I represent the Learning and Teaching Academy on several university-wide projects and committees, and am a member of the Islam-UK Centre Management Board. I am a certified member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT), an Advance HE Senior Fellow (SFHEA), and a Cardiff University Education Senior Fellow.

I have worked within the University for 20 years in various roles including the University Registry, the School of Social Sciences, various iterations of the Education Support Team and the Learning and Teaching Academy. I facilitate the CMALT (Certified Membership of the Association for Learning Technology) accreditation scheme for the University, and I mentor on the Advance HE-accredited Cardiff University Education Fellowship and Associate Fellowship programmes. In collaboration with the Cardiff University Phoenix Project, I visited CILT (the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching) within the University of Namibia, and delivered several workshops, training sessions and presentations as part of the e-learning strand of the programme. I have completed dozens of technology enhanced learning projects for the University including funded online courses, EIF (Education Innovation Funded) projects, student CUSEIP (Cardiff University Student Education Innovation Projects) funded projects and various learning technology rollouts.
