My role is to co-ordinate the development and maintenance of effective digital learning content for several online courses for a University collaboration funded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) Food. This includes working with the educators to develop and produce a range of relevant, engaging and effective digital learning content (including text, images, film, animations, audio files), and building the final course within the EIT Food Partners area on FutureLearn. I am responsible for ensuring content reflects the production and quality assurance values of FutureLearn, EIT and the University of Reading, as well as providing guidance and training on facilitation of live runs.
Prior to joining the Online Courses team in January 2019 I was (and still am, in my remaining two days a week!) the Managing Publisher for Two Rivers Press Ltd, an independent book publisher based in Reading. In this role I have worked with various Reading University academics to produce books for a general audience. Before this I ran my own publishing services business having spent 10 years in educational publishing companies such as Pearson and John Wiley & Sons.
