Learning design and technology-enhanced learning (TEL)
My current role involves leading on instructional design and development of blended modules in close collaboration with academic subject matter specialists.
I have extensive expertise in instructional design and the use of learning technologies for teaching and training, backed by a PG Diploma in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and SEDA (Staff and Educational Association) certificates in Supporting Learning with Technology and Embedding Learning Technologies.
I use a range of tools and approaches in my work, including the Articulate suite (Rise, Storyline), the Adobe suite (Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop), Camtasia, H5P and others. I am a proficient sysadmin-level user of Blackboard and Moodle virtual learning environments.
My academic career in translation started in 1999 when I began my MA in English Philology, specialising in translation. Since then I have also completed a PhD in literary studies/translation. My doctoral dissertation titled “Translation as Difference: Cultural Aspects of Literary Translation” (2013) discussed four English translations of contemporary Polish novels.
