I have worked in schools and colleges combining my passionate interest in education, technology and the environment. Through a Churchill Fellowship I set up an international project “Arctic to Mediterranean – using butterflies as indicators of climate change”.
I completed my PhD at Exeter (Supervisors Keith Postlethwaite and Patrick Dillon) looking at "Teacher motivation and learning in online international communities. I have published several papers with Keith and presented at a number of international Conferences.
I subsequently became an eLearning specialist at the National College for School Leadership and I now act as a consultant on eLearning. I am delighted to be an RSA Fellowship Councillor. I am also Chair of the Welsh Association of Churchill Fellows and a member of the Linnean Society Education group. As a member of the RSA Fellowship Council I work with FRSA building communities of interest. I am also a member of The Marie Curie Research Strategic Advisory Committee.
Much of my current work involves enabling skill-sharing by people who are willing to act as advisors / mentors / coaches.
