What I do best is offer ideas and suggestions for improving an online course based on the vital few areas that really matter in self-paced learning at AU.

What I can help you with includes:

  • Designing learning solutions that address the student learning needs that have been clearly identified in all AU student surveys
  • Integrating digital technology into a course for sound pedagogical reasons, such as creating 5-minute videos, podcasts, interactive e-books, and mobile learning solutions
  • Developing authentic assessments that focus on the essential knowledge and skills of a course
  • Making a course flexible, smaller, and more focused so that students can move through it quickly and effectively
  • Embedding effective study strategies into the course content and activities

I have 20 years of experience working in educational design in higher education. I have a Master of Philosophy (M Phil) in Education and a BA (Hons) in Applied Social Studies.
