September marks my last month working for the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull.
I am thankful for the amazing 10 years I have had there, working as a Learning Developer over a couple of different job titles. ?
From next month (October), I will join the University of Hull School of Education (@UoHEducation) as a Lecturer in Education Studies. ?
I am very excited about this career change, and the new opportunities it will bring.
I'm still working for @HullUni_Library for the rest of this month, & when I do leave, I won't be going far.
As my new start approaches, I can't wait to work with new & old colleagues @UoHEducation. I look forward to helping teach/develop the excellent programmes they offer.
While I have worked in Higher Education for 12 years, by the end of this month, this new job will mark my first academic role and (scholarship & teaching) contract. I welcome any advice as I embrace this new journey. ?
While, on paper, this transition is a move from Learning Development, I don't see it that way. A fundamental understanding of how students learn & how the hidden curriculum undermines them is something I intend to take into my practice!
#loveLD has not seen the last of me!
I admire how you champion and appreciate professional services. I hope to follow your example as I move into the academic world! ?
