My Profile

26 March 2022

I have a background in eLearning, Instructional Design, training and teaching, having taught in both New Zealand and the United Kingdom. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Computer Science and completed my Master of Education in Online and Distance Education (with Honours) in 2010, researching the perceptions of staff and students in the use of asynchronous and synchronous tools.

In 2009 I was appointed New Zealand's first Higher Education Adobe Education Leader in recognition of my work in the area of web-conferencing. In 2004 I was appointed as one of 15 inaugural Flexible Learning Leaders in New Zealand, recognising my innovative use of technology in teaching and learning.

I have experience in a number of multimedia and web-authoring products, as well as an absolute passion for all Apple products, notably the Macintosh. From 2002-2007, I wrote the multimedia section of New Zealand's only Macintosh magazine "NZ Macguide". In 2003, I launched NZMac.com, a website dedicated to supporting the New Zealand Macintosh community, and a sister site (NZiPhone.com) in 2008, before selling the sites in 2011.

NZMac.com was the largest Macintosh web site in New Zealand and ran on an open source content management system called Joomla. I am an experienced Joomla user (this site runs on Joomla) and NZMac.com was featured as a case study in a published Joomla book, as well as being mentioned briefly in another.

I am currently working as a contract Instructional Designer with Fire and Emergency New Zealand as part of the Paearu Mahi project. The role includes the following responsibilities:

  • Provide blended instructional design consultancy services.
  • Scope, design and deliver a range of deliverables for the Assessment and Learning workstreams.
  • Establish and implement the design and delivery schedule for product development for the Paearu Mahi programme development phase.
  • Contribute to project reporting deliverables, as required.
  • Participate and contribute to project peer review processes with own and other project team deliverables.
