About

Currently ASM/Head of Cyber Security, I have considerable experience as a lecturer having taught computing in both Further and Higher Education as well as on a freelance basis. In 2011 I began lecturing in IT Security and had Programme Leader responsibility for the Foundation Degree in IT Security at one of USW’s partner colleges. I have delivered a significant amount of training to staff on Teaching, Learning & Assessment, Digital Literacy, Teaching HE in FE, Technology Enhanced Learning and more. In 2016 I became a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I have also completed a Digital Literacy Practitioners Award. I am passionate about teaching, learner engagement and digital literacy, and am interested in looking into the way computers and digital tools are used in assessment, and in particular how authenticity and originality of students’ work can be ensured. I am a mentor for the TSL scheme at USW, and on the Women In Universities Mentoring Scheme (WUMS).
