Currently working for Research and Enterprise at City University, London. This is a teaching team in the department concerned with knowledge transfer, and the commercialization of research. I'm therefore enthusiastic about my own research work in online learning design. What interests me here are potential opportunities to help other subject experts deliver valuable learning to students via E-learning, distance or blended learning models.

Originally from an Engineering background, I set a new direction with a Diploma in Computer Graphic Design at The Institute for Graphic Design in Hamburg, Germany. An interest in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) propelled me to broaden my expertise into web design, programming and site management. Studies with the Open University began an interest in the rapidly evolving area of learning technologies and process of supporting learning online. On my return to the UK, Adam managed and supported online learning resources at Havering College and Bournemouth University, and designed a variety of E-learning courses. For this he obtained a PGCE in Post-Compulsory Education with Greenwich University. I'm continuing my research into learning technologies, website design and HCI with an MSC in Learning Technologies at the University of Brighton. Commercial experience in design and marketing continues to enhance my work within the Research and Enterprise Team.

IT Champion / Staff Trainer

My role as Learning Resources ILT Officer / IT Champion involved planning, designing and implementing training for staff. I customised the FERL ILT Practitioners Programme. I planned activities for staff training days, co-ordinating these with the other IT champions and Advanced Practitioners. My role in the Learning Resources department allowed me to play an active role in the development of College ILT and E-learning strategy

2007- 2008: Learning Technologist, Bournemouth University

The first-line support for myBU, the Blackboard Virtual Learning environment. This required a thorough knowledge of E-learning issues, and continual communication with academic staff and external companies. The role also involved developing training materials for academic staff in order that they could use new learning technologies and sector developments, including lecture capture, and Web 2.0 technologies. The role gave me insights into university structure, how a central e-learning service relates to the various client schools, department and course teams.

2002-2007: LRC ILT Officer; Department IT Champion; Havering College of Further & Higher Education
