I’m a Senior Lecturer at Yr Athrofa – The Institute at Education at UWTSD. I act as subject tutor to the secondary History PGCE cohort, but also provide support for Digital Competence, Y Cwricwlwm Cymreig and a range of other topics across all courses.
Before taking this role in 2017 I had been a teacher at Olchfa School in Swansea, where I was a teacher of History, ICT and the Welsh Bacc. I was also the school E-Learning Coordinator, having previously coordinated the school’s ‘SMART’ skills program. From 2014 until 2016 I was seconded to the Hwb team in Welsh Government.
Before training as a teacher in 2004 I had a variety of jobs at Aberystwyth University (including working in the Office for Widening Participation), Aberystwyth Guild of Students (including a year as President) and as a caretaker at my old school.
The work my year 13 students had done with online revision was recognised in our winning the inaugural ‘National Digital Learning Award’ in the post-16 category in June 2013.
This blog covers a range of topics, generally educationally related, that shift over time as my interests do. You can find a complete archive of posts here.
You can often find me speaking at Teachmeets in South Wales, and I’ve developed workshops in the past for the Schools History Project Conference, Teaching Learning and Assessment Berkhamsted, Portal Training and SkyRocket Training.
As well as this blog, you can find me all over the internet, particularly in the following places:
