TEL staff Jackie Fairbairn

“Hello, I’m the newest member of the TEL team and I’m really looking forward to working with staff at Reading University.

Before joining the University I worked inĀ FE colleges, as a lecturer in Creative Technologies and in a support role providing staff development sessions and mentoring PGCE students. Within these roles I covered a variety of eLearning tools; I have a particular interest in blended learning and deploying new technologies in the classroom.

I am keen to share the benefits of technology in learning. My degree is in Graphic Design and I started my career in education by working for an educational app provider, which sparked my interest in teaching and learning. Alongside working in the TEL department, I am completing a part-time MA in Education.”
