In 2022 I was awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy, professional recognition for educators in higher education who have demonstrated a deep understanding of how students learn and a commitment to professional development.

In 2021 I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Online and Distance Education through the Open University, earning a distinction.  I have also completed numerous short courses on the Microsoft Educator Center, LinkedIn Learning and FutureLearn on various teaching and technology-enhanced learning topics.

I have attained both Practitioner and Advocate awards through DigiLearn, UCLan’s internal digital CPD scheme for academic staff, demonstrating both my own development in technology-enhanced learning, and my commitment to helping my colleagues develop their own TEL practice.
