Hello, I’m Iain

A Learning Technologist

I’m an ALT highly commended and certified Learning Technologist working freelance from France.

I’ve carefully built my expertise at the intersection between teaching, technology and communication. Comfortable operating in either camp, but most at home uniquely combining elements of all three.

With 20 years’ experience from roles in mainstream media, local government and higher education I now work remotely on projects from my base in north west France (CET). A UK citizen and native English speaker I am learning French (currently to B1 standard).

I’m available for hire by universities, colleges & schools, private training providers and HR companies and departments for consultation, creation and coaching

This isn’t an exhaustive list and I am flexible in using similar or related software or brands. Where something is new, I’ll take the time needed to develop the necessary understanding. I’ve done it many times before and I’ll happily do it again.

I’ve worked hard to build a wide-ranging portfolio. Here’s a small sample of my latest projects.

I’ve been fortunate to work with many talented people. Here’s what they said about me.

(Iain's) innovative and problem solving approach towards developing an electronic portfolio which supports staff members with their Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) revalidation has been invaluable. Not only has he supported the development of this tool but also delivered training sessions to groups and individuals as required. His approachability and excellent communication make Iain an obvious first point of contact for any staff that requires support in developing materials associated with the delivery of a variety of initiatives.

I have worked with Iain as part of a multi-professional group to develop PebblePad for BSc Nursing. Iain has excelled in his ability to be proactive, reactive and innovative in driving this forward. Iain is exceptionally quick to respond to queries and adapt processes to meet organisational and individual needs. Iain has worked in an exceptional professional manner with external services, often in difficult environments to find solutions. I have no doubt the PebblePad initiative would not be the success it is. Iain is a real credit to his profession and an asset to our university.

Emma Dillon | Senior Lecturer, Mental Health Nursing, University of Northampton

I have worked with Iain over the last two years on a project integrating PebblePad into the undergraduate Podiatry programme for Year 1 students. Throughout this time Iain has shown great dedication by enabling our transition into electronic clinical portfolio capture. In my experience he always embraces his colleagues with patience and enthusiasm. We are delighted with the improvements that PebblePad has made to our student experience. Iain's commitment to this project has provided us with a user-friendly and dynamic tool which we now intend to integrate further into other cohorts. Aside from this, Iain will always offer help on any ILT issue and is a great asset to the Learning Technology Team.
