Educational Practice:

I joined the University of the Arts London UAL in 2003 and since 2007 I've been exploring and experimenting with new approaches and models for online open practice, collaboration & digital innovation. I'm currently the Digital Learning Technologies Manager, part of CCW Digital, Learning & Teaching Enhancement (LTE) at the University of the Arts London, Camberwell, Chelsea & Wimbledon (CCW).

I continue to work on UAL's Open Educational Practice and digital literacies advancements, building on UALs growing reputation as forward thinking university in this newly developing area and presented nationally and internationally, see conferences and presentations here.

Research and project funding from JISC, HEA & The Open University:

I've worked on a number of JISC and HEA funded projects including the Developing Digital Literacies programme and the JISC UKOER programmes phases 2 & 3 ALTO & ALTO UK and the development of UALs open practice unit. Between 2011 and 2014 I worked as the DIAL project manager 'Digital Integration Into Arts Learning' part of CLTAD the Centre for Learning and Teaching in Art and Design. In 2012 I completed a year-long SCORE fellowship at the Open University.

Voluntary projects:

In 2007 I initiated process.arts and in 2013 artsmooc.org voluntary unfunded projects exploring open online communities for sharing art, design and media practice based learning and teaching.
