Title: Learning Technology Officer at UCL
Selected Platform: Facebook
Bio: I am currently working as a Learning Technology Officer at UCL, supporting the core e-learning services. Previously I worked in a similar position at Southampton Solent University as an e-Learning Support Officer. Here I gained a lot of knowledge in e-learning. I have a Master degree in Media for which I achieved a Merit and an undergraduate degree in journalism, for which I gained a 2:1. My main passions within learning technology relate to social learning platforms, including e-portfolios, social media and web 2.0 tools.
The reason I will be good at using Facebook at FOTE12 is because it is a platform that is second nature to me. I regularly use Facebook (and other social media platforms) to post not only updates about my personal life but also to post about interesting links, or debates relating to learning technologies. I have run many training sessions about Facebook for staff and students and have also run a session on Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin for the Hampshire branch of the British Computer Society.
