My background in newspaper and multi-platform journalism has developed my skills in print production and online reporting.
I am adept at utilising InDesign to produce newspapers with students and have begun designing digital products for smartphones and tablets. I have built and run several websites, including this one.
This has involved working with learners to develop content – mostly news – and finding innovative ways of sharing it online, including via social media.
Currently I am primarily researching areas of entrepreneurial journalism with the aim of developing exploratory low-cost news platforms with learners. This research has recently involved applying for funding from the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
