I am attached to Capacity Development Approaches team at INASP leading and supporting INASP staff and in-country partners on online learning and training for a variety of audiences in developing countries. I am co-founder of Creative Digital Solutions (CDS Ltd)- research and consultancy company in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). We have worked on educational projects with organisations such as Tate (Tate on Khan project), BBC learning (Micro:Bit project), INASP and Learning Strategies International.
Before founding CDS Ltd, I was attached to the London Knowledge Lab, Institute of Education working on the ESRC- KEO funded ‘Building Community Knowledge‘ project led by Professor Diana Laurillard. From 2010 to 2013 I was a researcher attached to the Education Enhancement Team at the University of Oxford. I have worked in a number of JISC-, HEA-, and ESRC-funded projects in the field of TEL, specialising in digital experience research and evaluation, learning design, Open Educational Resources (OER Impact Study), Open Practice (OER Engagement Study) and Open Access. Most recently, I was part of a team introducing Oxford researchers to the RCUK policy on Open Access (Open Access at Oxford). Earlier, I was involved in the ESRC/EPSRC-funded Learning Design Support Environment project (LDSE), where I was part of a team developing an intelligent digital tool – Learning Designer – to support academics in designing for blended and online learning.
Before joining Academic IT Services I worked first as e-learning course designer and staff developer at the Centre of e-Learning of AGH-University of Science and Technology in Krakow, and then as scientific project manager and educational researcher in the Technology & Knowlege Unit at the Centre for Social Innovation researching in several TEL projects funded by EC FP7 and Lifelong Learning Programme.
