Over the next few years I would like to further my knowledge with regard to practical applications of learning technologies and their impact on learning and teaching. To ensure my research knowledge is current I will continue reading relevant journals, attending conferences and subscribing to relevant mailing groups. I would also like to carry out and publish some research in this area.
I am starting a new job as Blended Learning Specialist in April 2017, and I am looking forward to it as it involves working closely with the course team, subject matter experts and the e-learning team on developing an innovative blended course utilising the latest educational technologies and pedagogical concepts. I hope this new role will allow me to develop professionally through applying my knowledge to teaching and learning in a specific academic discipline.
