About Me

Technophile n. a person who likes or readily adopts technology. OED


Firstly let me thank you for reading my blog. As the tagline states, these pages are filled with my rambling thoughts on the use of technology in UK Higher Education. I hope you find my posts thought provoking if nothing else.

I have been working in UK Higher Education since I finished my media degree. I had the naïve dream of becoming the next Stephen Spielberg, suffice to say that didn’t happen. I wouldn’t say I loved education so much I didn’t want to leave, rather, I fell into education by accident. I needed a job; I wanted to use the creative skills I had learnt and a university offered me an internship doing exactly that. I got hooked on education, I found thinking about how people could use technology in their teaching incredibly satisfying, the rest, as they say, is history.

I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, have a PGCert Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and my team and I were commended in the ALT Learning Technologists Team of the Year 2016. I received my Certified Membership of the Association of Learning Technologists on 2nd August 2017.

I’ve spent ~10 years in a variety of learning technology roles. My CV is available on LinkedIn and you can follow me on Mastodon. I am now Chief Operations Officer at the Association for Learning Technology.

The incoherent ramblings I post on this blog are my personal opinion and do not represent the opinions of my employers, past or present.

All the best,
