In my role as Educational Resources Coordinator, I work closely with faculty, professional and technical staff to support the development and integration of learning technologies and information literacy skills into courses and programs as well as coordinate the Distance Education Activities
Through my activities in educational development and support around technology integration, I focus on devising practical activities and materials to assist interested SoN faculty to effectively integrate technology into their teaching. My work in this area includes providing support for the online course development and delivery through modelling, mentoring, and direct support as well as facilitating appropriate organisational support for the integration of technology into teaching and learning

As well as my teaching role, I am the Educational Resources Coordinator for the School of Nursing. This role involves overseeing the Learning Resources Centre as well as the coordination of the distance education activities, including online course and resources development.
I have been a member of the SON teaching faculty since 1987. The courses I teach are related to Nursing Roles and Competencies and developing skills for clinical practice. An area of particular interest to me is the design and implementation of simulation and virtual learning environments to support teaching and learning. To this end I engage in applying my expertise as a nurse educator to developing and implementing initiatives focused on the integration of computers and technology.
