Kirsty is the Senior Developer in Distance Learning and Veterinary Education for the MSc in Veterinary Education.
Kirsty completed a BSc (Hons) in Geography at the University of Dundee and obtained an MSc in Coastal science and management at the University of Hull.
Kirsty then worked at the University of Plymouth from 2005 to 2009 as a research and development officer, investigating learning across a range of scientific disciplines. She also gained MSc qualifications in educational research modules which has enabled her to provide students with support and guidance for how to appropriately use these methods in a research environment.
From 2009 to 2012, Kirsty worked as a researcher at the LIVE centre on the Enhancing Clinical learning in the workplace project which led her into exploring the role of educational technologies in helping to prepare students for the workplace. She was awarded funding for a mini-project to develop a flexible learning resource for final year veterinary and nursing students, On-Line Induction Video Educational Resources (OLIVER)
Since 2012, Kirsty works as the senior developer in distance learning and veterinary education for the MSc in Veterinary Education course; she designs and develops all of the online content for the modules on Moodle. She is also a module leader, course tutor and examiner on the course.
Previous and ongoing research focuses on veterinary education, with a special interest in workplace learning and distance learning.
