Hello, I’m Jason and I am a new Learning Technologies Adviser (LTA) at the University of Brighton for the Moulsecoomb campus. I am based in the Aldrich Library.
In my previous Job, I was a web applications developer at the University of Sussex. I worked on the University’s Sussex Direct portal and other systems such as postgraduate admissions.
I have also taught IT skills to staff and students at Sussex. I started at Sussex as a postgraduate student in engineering.
Outside of work, I have a slightly obsessive interest in bands such as Pop Will Eat Itself and The Wonder Stuff; I suspect my being from Birmingham is the reason. I enjoy seeing live music and comedy.
I occasionally blog at jasonbailey.net. Topics include lost cats and using matlab to process google analytics. We did find the cat and she was fine.
I am hoping to put my previous experience to good use in supporting staff in their teaching and research.
I am looking forward to meeting lots of people over the next few weeks; if you see me, please say hello.
Nice intro Jason! Welcome.
