English Faculty

The Faculty of English Language and Literature is the largest English Department in the UK. It has over 75 permanent postholders, a further 70 Faculty members, 900 undergraduates and 300 postgraduates.

I worked at the Faculty between 2001-2003. As Resource Development Officer I created and maintained online resources for the faculty and offered help and support to Faculty mambers who were interested in developing or using digital resources for teaching or research. I also ran training sessions at the faculty and created online support and training material.

Europeana 1914-1918

Europeana 1914-1918 / Erster Weltkrieg in Alltagsdokumenten is a project funded by the European digital library 'Europeana'. The project aims to collect and make available artifacts and memorabilia from the First World War held by the general public. The projcet collects material online and by running collection days in various locations, and started with a collection in Germany (2011-). The project builds on the work by the Great War Archive.

I have been working for this project since its start in 2010/11. I have taken part in the planning and execution of the project, including the technical development, production and publication of information and support material, collection and editing of digital resources and the practical work at the collection events.

ITLP & Research Skills Toolkit

The IT Learning Programme (ITLP) at the University of Oxford offers over 200 different IT courses. The Research Skills Toolkit provides research skills training and support in the shape of live workshops and an online portal listing tools, tips and techniques to support researchers in their work.

I have taught on different ITLP courses, mainly in the areas of online literacy, text analysis and corpus linguistics, and been invloled in inductions both at OUCS and at departments. During the academic year 2009-2010 I worked on the Research Skills Toolkit, identifying, evaluating and describing resources suitable for those involved in research.
