Wendy Davis

Digital Learning Specialist

Previous experience:

I first started to create eLearning while studying for a BSc (Hons) Multimedia Technology Degree. I soon went on to teach Information Technology and have a PGCE teaching qualification.

When I started, I was teaching software development creating databases and spreadsheets but moved on to teach what I considered to be fun subjects, C++ programming, animation and game design. I studied for a Masters In Education that afforded me the opportunity to refocus on eLearning. I trained other lecturers on how to deliver online learning material before changing career to a full time digital learning technologist. As apart of my journey, I worked as an Instructional Designer for a global analytics company but I missed the feeling of being part of a team that can make a difference to lives in this world and was lucky enough to secure a job at Save the Children. I am proud to state I am exactly where I want to be. I have a passion to make eLearning engaging and immersive, and I am humbled to be doing this as part of such a noble organisation.

One thing to know:

On the rare occasions I have spare time I am learning Poser, a 3D character building software and I attend a class on Accelerated story telling to make eLearning more immersive.
