MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
I have a background in two interelated creative fields, the media and education. From starting out on the BBC World Service's English Language Teaching arm; Learning English, I grew to love the creativity of using the media as a tool to educate. I've worked at a senior level within media and education, with a particular interest in Skills for Life.
I am a qualified Skills for Life practitioner (Cert. Ed. & BA in Education) with Subject Specialist (Level 4) in teaching Literacy and Numeracy. I have been a lecturer in a variety of settings; LearnDirect centres, workplaces, probation service, family learning, adults with additional needs (dyslexia, dyspraxia etc.) FE, HE and as a teacher trainer.
Within the media I have online production skills - (selection) Senior Producer on BBC raw computers www.bbc.co.uk/raw/computers/) , BBC WebWise (www.bbc.co.uk/webwise) and BBC Skillswise (www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise).
In addition I am an education writer, creating resources; worksheets, quizzes, workshops and scripts - (selection) Tribal Target Skills (https://shop.tribalgroup.co.uk/All-products/Target-Skills-Gold.html), BBC Skillswise and Murder Most Famous (www.bbc.co.uk/murdermostfamous/tips/).
I'm currently working with The Reading Agency (www.readingagency.org.uk) where we are researching the use of gaming to engage and motivate low literacy level adults in reading for pleasure. We are keen to publish this research to a wider audience to encourage further debate around the subject.
