Hello - I'm a regional academic at Open University in the South West managing courses in childhood and youth.
My interests include open educational practices and the relationship between formal and informal learning - issues reflected in my regular blog posts about multimedia & e-learning resources for the childhood and youth workforce at cyp-media.org. You'll also find me on Twitter @CYPmedia and on Facebook at freeCYPmedia.
2005 Master of Education (Lifelong Learning) - Open University.
I have a history of joint-working with childhood and youth employers including:
Co-author: Hughes, J., Hunter B. & Coughlan, T.. (2008). Learning to Change. Milton Keynes: The Open University. isbn 978-0-7492-1959-8
As a Fellow of the Support Centre for Open Resources in Education I've worked on CharityWise - a project to develop vocational OERs in partnership with the UK voluntary sector. I've maintained an ongoing blog, plus both a summary and report on the project have been published.
Beyond paid work I’m a director & trustee of a children's charity
