Face-to-face, blended and fully online course development


Putting people at the heart of the learning experience, both educators and students is key in delivering engaging, inclusive and accessible resources. Knowledge transfer is all about communication, and using the right methods that is receptive to the audience. When building resources it’s important to understand the wrap-around, the interactions that support the experience which makes using the resource worthwhile. Giving the learner a reason for using it, as well as making it accessible and inclusive, using universal design principles to make sure all can engage. Getting the basics right can have more impact than making a fancy, all singing, all dancing resource. Combining my experience in design, photography, videography and eLearning allows me to bring all these elements together to develop innovative solutions, but also sometimes, simple solutions that are just as effective.

Religion is just one framework that shows how theories about life, link with ways of living.
