I recently joined the Learning Technology Team as the maternity cover for Alex O’Neill (who is now busy with her daughter who arrived safely towards the end of April) and I thought I would take the opportunity to introduce myself.

It is now the end of my third week as a new member of staff and I think I’ve managed to visit nearly every café or restaurant that the Colchester campus has to offer. Luckily I have also joined the Evolve gym at the Sports Centre to counteract the increase in calorie consumption!

I previously worked at University College London as a Teaching Administrator where I gained a good working knowledge of Moodle and other learning technologies. My role at the University of Essex will cover supporting staff and students in the use of the learning technology systems you use here. For those of you who don’t know, these systems include Moodle, OCS and Listen Again (to name but a few). So if you are an academic who wants to find out about different ways of using technology to deliver your lectures or engage your students more, let us know. Or if you are an administrator who wants to know a bit more about how Moodle can support your students and save you time, please contact us.  Similarly, if you are a student and are having problems using Moodle, OCS, Listen Again or have some comments about any of the Learning Technology systems at the University of Essex, please get in touch.

I look forward to meeting you and helping wherever I can.
