I’ve most recently moved into this position from the School of Education at Falmer, I was the Technical (ICT) Demonstrator working mainly as a distance-learning technician for the Troops to Teachers programme.
Prior to my seven months with the SOE, I had been working as a Media and Design Specialist at a tiny top-rated Liberal Arts Uni called Carleton College (Higher Ed, not FE, it’s the States, and we weirdly have our own naming conventions) in Minnesota. I was the coordinator of a large multimedia lab and experiential-learning facility called the IdeaLab. I worked with staff and students to best utilise digital and media technologies in their courses. Like many people in learning technologies, I’m a grand generalist when it comes to using technology, however I admit to strengths audio/visual and publishing technologies. I’m really excited to be based in Hastings, as the courses offered here are right up my alley, and I really believe that I’ll be a great fit at this wonderful campus.
Outside of work, I’m a practising street-photographer and also a happy dog-walker to my great “floof” of a dog, Agamemnon (Memnon for short) who has travelled across the pond with my wife and myself… Which means he consistently believes that everyone walks on the wrong side of the pavement, creating all sorts of fun with lead-tangled legs of other pedestrians.
I look forward to digging in, and being helpful in all ways techie.
