I work in the LES HEFi Digital team which supports the College of Life and Environmental Sciences.

I provide day-to-day advice and support for our core teaching and learning platforms, including Canvas, Panopto, PebblePad and Turnitin. I also help to deliver digital skills CPD training, and often work closely with the educational support team within the College in terms of support and training for the core teaching platforms.

Alongside the core platform support, I’m also involved in supporting and developing media for teaching, such as video resources or 360 images for applications such virtual tours or site visits and field trips. As part of this activity I work quite closely with the BIFoR team in the School of Bioscience in support of the BIFoR Education resources.


I have worked in technology enhanced learning for over fifteen years, after finishing my postgraduate studies here at the University of Birmingham. I have been an elearning/TEL consultant in a central role, and also attached to the EPS College. From 2019 to 2022 I worked in IT Services at the University of Oxford, as part of a large institutional roll-out of Canvas. In summer of 2022 I returned to take up a post in the LES HEFi Digital team.
