I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the CLL team.
My name is Marie Allen and my job title at HYMS is Learning Enhancement and Support Assistant , in the Learning Enhancement and Support Team. I started at HYMS on the 3rd of April. I will be providing front-line support to enquires around Blackboard and our various TEL resources and services, as well as promoting our service through workshops and training sessions, alongside Paul Scott and Daniel Mackley.
I have a keen interest in TEL and come from a teaching and academic/administrative support background. I have worked as an English as a foreign language teacher at the University of Bordeaux, as a freelance English teacher/private tutor at other higher education institutions in Bordeaux as well as directly with private students, always using and promoting TEL with my students and fellow teachers. I have also worked in various academic / administrative support roles at the University of Sheffield, Bordeaux University and Liryc Heart Research Institute.
I look forward to working with you all and contributing/helping to improve our service in the Learning Enhancement and Support Team.
