Senior Academic Coordinator (elearning)
University of Southampton

I manage the elearning activity at the LLAS Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies, including managing projects and running events, and delivering training and information on the LOC tool (Learning Object Creator). LOC is a simple tool for non-techie teachers who want to create pedagogically sound online learning material. I'm responsible for organising the annual LLAS e-learning symposium too - this is held in late January every year. I have recently conceived and managed several projects exploring open educational resources: the HumBox, Community Cafe, FAVOR and OpenLIVES projects (JISC-funded ventures). I have a background in learning languages and spent many years as an EAP (English for Academic Purposes) teacher. I have learnt a variety of languages to a variety of levels including Russian, French, German, Chinese and Japanese.
