While studying on the PGCE course I became a trainer and a
support worker for PebblePad, helping my peers with the use of the
system. With this experience I then became a mentor for the School
of Education helping the PGCE students with their ePortfolios.
After that I became a member of the Institute for Learning
Enhancement. While working with ILE my job role changed and I
became a Blended Learning Adviser.
As a Blended Learning adviser I am tasked in helping to support
blended learning in all schools, but I am assigned to the School of
Health and Wellbeing and the School of Art and Design. My job is
also to enhance students learning experience by using technology.
My role with CETL is to help evaluate the impact technology has had
within the schools.
I would like to study a Masters degree in Education and then
move on to a PhD. I feel the experience I have gained in the last
few years I have worked for the University of Wolverhampton would
really help me in progressing at this level.
I have developed and given staff training for a variety of
different systems with in the university including:
