Introducing our new Academic Learning Technologist

Nisha Headshot Cropped (002)

I’m delighted to announce that Nisha Sharif has been appointed as our new Academic Learning Technologist. You may have already come across Nisha who has been working in the team as e-learning advisor for the past 16 months dealing with the team emails and generally keeping us organised. After a very competitive recruitment process, Nisha will now take up her new role and will be supporting academics and students in using Blackboard, PebblePad, Turnitin and all the other learning technologies provided by the team.

With a background in creative digital media, Nisha is keen to work with academic staff wishing to create interactive learning materials or screencasts. The team have access to authoring software which can help build professional learning objects so if you have an idea of a resource you would like to develop but don’t know where to start, please get in touch with Nisha who can work collaboratively with you to help develop your idea.
