About the Team
The Technology and Innovation in Learning Team (TILT) develop online teaching and learning resources for the Undergraduate Medical Programme at the University of Dundee. TILT develop formative assessment resources, provide bespoke visuals and monitor and update VLE’s. We also provide training and guidance for staff and students.
Learning and Design Technology Lead
I lead the development of the digital learning environment that supports our UG programmes, and I lead TILT who work in partnership with staff as we seek effective ways to enhance the student learning experience. My academic background is Applied Physics at Edinburgh Napier University where my PhD involved mathematical modelling of spectroscopy data from a clinical MRI scanner. More recently I completed a PgDip in Educational Technology with TESOL, and became a Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy.
Originally from Newcastle upon Tyne, I am the Medical Artist in the TILT team. I create illustrations, 3D models, infographics and animations to enhance both student and staff learning. I have an extensive interest in the relationship between art and science.
My role is to introduce new technology to improve content and delivery of teaching within the School of Medicine for both staff and students. Front end development and user interface is a large part of my job. I also develop learning resources and support the student’s selected components with their digital learning projects.
Always happy to help!
I support the service delivery of the Medical School’s learning platforms for students, academics and admin teams. I develop a range of digital resources for use in learning and teaching and provide guidance to our teaching community on the use of digital tools to enhance learning and teaching.
