Profile Summary

 

Since 1991 I have worked in clinical practice, service management and education. I have taught students at the University of Salford since 2003 and hold the post of Professional Lead.
I am passionate about using technology to facilitate learning and connect occupational therapists globally. I have co-developed an online MSc in Advanced Occupational Therapy, lead on embedding learning technologies in the undergraduate curriculum, and co-developed an app focusing occupational balance.  I am also a founder member of Online Technology for Occupational Therapy (OT4OT), now recognised by the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) as an International Advisory Group for social media.
I would like to connect with you on Facebook or Twitter, so do get in touch.
