I am an educator with over a decade of experience in technology learning and higher teaching in Higher Education at Cardiff University (and almost a decade of experience in Further Education before that, as a maths teacher and manager). I have worked in the central professional services, academic school, and college including working for the Doctoral Training Partnership across Wales. As well as training staff, I teach medical educators at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I joined Cardiff Academy of Learning and Teaching in summer 2020 and started my current role as Digital Learning Manager in early 2021.
