I love to learn and enjoy sharing that love. Currently, I’m working on a project, the Time Trek Team, which aims to unlock the learning opportunities in World Heritage Sites and engage children and teachers from around the world with them. My multidisciplinary background provides me with plenty of tools to achieve this:
- the ability to break concepts down into manageable chunks, first learnt from running juggling workshops as a teenager;
- a good eye for design developed through prop and set building for Trestle and Grid Iron Theatre Company;
- cross-cultural awareness gained through living in India, Spain, Madagascar, Brazil and Germany (MA Social Anthropology, Edinburgh University);
- an understanding of how to actively engage learners developed through years of teaching English as a foreign language and running video making workshops (Post Graduate Certificate in Education in the Life-long Learning Sector, University of Greenwich);
- and last, but not least, in this digital age, I have been Moodling for many years, collaborating to create accessible online learning resources (MSc in Learning Technologies, Institute of Education/ Birkbeck College, University of London).
