I am an Instructional Designer for the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) Team. The TEL team works to improve the students' learning experience at University through intelligent use of technology for learning and assessment. Since 2017, I have been working with Academic departments and Professional Service teams to design engaging learning experiences, face-to-face training material and online resources. This usually includes: enhancing Moodle courses, or presentations with interactive or visual elements; producing instructional videos or written guides that help to break down large pieces of information. I have a background in Graphic Arts (Graphic Design; Illustration; Print & Layout). I have previously assisted in design studios in London and Colchester, helping to create work for Silicon Valley Comic Con, NHS, Colchester FC.
