My experience on the course
Undertaking this course was incredibly important for my personal development after working in academia for a number of years where I had a technical background but found limited opportunity to contribute in a learning and teaching context. A change in role combined with the MSc in Digital Education has allowed me to develop both my skills and self-confidence that has already had a positive impact on professional opportunities available to me.
I was so pleased to be accepted on this course and without a doubt it has proved to be the most engaging enjoyable course I have participated in. The excellent modules, lecturers involved and variety of learning opportunities really has re-invigorated my passion for digital education technologies.
What I'm doing now
I am responsible for the open education strategy for EPrints - the open source, open content digital repository platform created by the University of Southampton. For my MSc dissertation I undertook a scoping study into the discoverability strategies of open education resources (OERs) and this work is now feeding in to our strategy for the future development. I am also sharing this work with the education community at relevant conferences.
