I teach Digital Marketing, Professionalism and Communication, and Dissertations. I have supervised final year projects at undergraduate and postgraduate level. My research interests include the use of social media in higher education, digital identity, and technology enhanced learning; and have presented both nationally and internationally as an invited keynote speaker and published on these topics. In 2015 I was named as one of the Top 50 UK Higher Education Social Media Influencers.
I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, a member of the HEA Recognition Panel and the Athena Swan Committee at SHU.
As an advocate of lifelong learning I co-developed and run an open online and cross-institution CPD course for educators and students, called Bring Your Own Devices for Learning to develop digital skills. I am the co-founder of the weekly national tweetchat 'Learning and Teaching in Higher Education' #LTHEchat.
I am also a Fellow and Executive Committee Member of Staff and Educational Development Association.
