We’re pleased to announce a new Learning Technologist for Brighton & Sussex Medical School. Although new to BSMS, Nicola Walters is a familiar face to BSUH NHS Trust staff from her work supporting iris and creating Departmental videos.
“I have recently joined BSMS as a Learning Technologist. I come to BSMS from a technical and education background. From a degree in sound engineering, I began technically supporting FE and HE media production courses. This progressed to 7 years’ experience teaching in media and IT. Then, I moved into managing a learning support team and working within a digital technologies initiative. In my previous post, I was a Learning Technologist at BSUH.
“Now, here at BSMS, my primary remit is to support BSMS PG programmes and teaching staff with the design, creation, implementation and evaluation of digital learning resources for healthcare courses, as part of a blended learning approach to enhance teaching and learning.
“Some of the main projects I will be working within include the development of courses for SAS doctors and resources for training and development of dissertation supervisors and I look forward to working further with educators on these projects.”
