I work as a learning designer at the University Of Queensland. It's a very satisfying role. I work with tertiary educators to maximise the student experience, improve learning outcomes, and encourage deeper learning.
I also get to work on adapting and developing tools to support these activities.
Assessment Ideas Factory
The UQ Assessment Ideas Factory is a searchable database of assessment techniques. Course coordinators can use the database to find assessment techniques that promote active learning, student engagement and academic integrity. The assessment techniques are described in general terms so you can transfer them into your course, plus you can also hear how staff have put them into practice. You can filter your search by many factors such as class size, year level, whether the assessment is identity verified, assessment type (e.g. written, oral, group etc.) or any combination of these.

UQ Program Planner
This was a planning tool I developed for students studying the Bachelor of Arts at UQ. The prototype was taken up as an enterprise system and is being rolled out to more programs.
