Exploring drama, education and technology.
I’m currently working in a university as an eLearning Advisor – charged with bringing a shift towards more effective application of quality pedgagogy and the unbiquitous tools for learning that exist in our digital landscape.
Here as more of a lurker than a doer, looking at the structures and models that the #ETMOOC is employing.
In reality, I’m still a drama teacher at heart… with the emphasis on drama as a process of learning rather than as vehicle for producing theatre.
I’m married to an outrageously clever librarian who’s working in what might be called the “disability sector” – probably one of the few totally digital librarians in the country. I’m dad to two amazingly challenging daughters aged 1 and 3.
A tragic sci-fi and fantasy fan… Dr Who is one of my current obsessions.
Self-taught tech skills… and despite knowing just how limited my tech capabilities are I still find many educators can’t track what I can do (r give th eappearanc eof doing after a 2 minute YouTube tutorial)
What do I want from this undertaking? Insight, experience, networking, opportunities to invade your mind… and the capacity to just walk away if I lose interest or need to apply myself elsewhere.
