The Digital Academic

This is my online place for sharing thoughts and ideas around learning, teaching and research in UK higher education. I’m a digital education developer and my role is supporting staff to use technology within their own teaching alongside the development of digital capabilities for everyone who teaches and supports learning. The blog is primarily work- related but other topics can slip in, like travel, fossils, my allotment and poetry. I also have pages for promoting digital inclusion and for reflections on the progress of my PhD which is about technology enhanced learning and creating support for academics to shift from face-to-face to online practice through immersive and experiential online engagement.
