New Principal Lecturers Student Experience

George Roberts

George Roberts
Since joining OCSLD in 2006 George has been project director for six successive projects, managing over £3 million of funds for the JISC and the Higher Education Academy, developed a productive consultancy relationship with Cranfield University, and completed a Phd. He has applied his expertise in technology enhanced learning to evaluations of e-portfolios and Open Online Courses (OOCs), researching, publishing and speaking on these topics.
George’s application for innovative and excellent teaching and learning was based on his work to lead the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education team through redesign and re-approval to create a programme with increased flexibility for participants including routes in online teaching and pathways to further study and leading the first open online course for Brookes (First Steps in Learning and Teaching) and the first open online courses for credit. His strong online presence and scholarly approach to the design of OOCs has positioned OCSLD well to be one of the forerunners in this emerging field of open academic practices for teachers.

Please join me in congratulating George and Marion their well deserved promotions.
