My role is a combination of producing internationally excellent research output, enhancing the learning experience of our students with the introduction of creative and innovative practices, delivering world class teaching to my students, ensuring that and coordinating a number of departmental (e.g. programme delivery, curriculum design, staff-related issues) and school-wide operations (e.g. employability strategy, quality, assessment and progression).
I have authored six books, and more than 100 papers in a number of international conferences and journals. I am acting as a member of the organising and program committees for international events, and participate in editorial boards for a number of journals. I have led and currently lead externally funded projects from UK, EU and international councils. My consultancy expertise is in the fields of e-learning, social media, learning analytics, educational technologies, quality issues in education, informatics, computer supported cooperative work and project management.
One of my core skills include the creation of e-learning content, e-books, online assessments and training materials including induction handbooks and staff development procedures. I am highly trained and experienced in institutional and programme validation and accreditation as well as quality assurance of higher and further education provision. I have led the curriculum design and development process for a number of programmes. I have managed more than 20 externally funded projects, and I am trained (practitioner level) in PRINCE2.
