My name is Kate Lindsay and I work is in the area of digital education and learning design.
I currently work at the University College of Estate Management transforming the design and delivery of our online programmes. Before that I was the Head of Technology Enhanced Learning at the University of Oxford where I had responsibility for the University’s core learning and teaching platforms and managed a team of experts who support faculty and course teams to design rich online and blended learning experiences. I have worked on digital education strategy, learning technology consultancy, staff digital fluencies, curriculum design, and IT innovation programmes.
I am an Ambassador for Public Engagement, and have supported numerous HE projects to use digital technologies to engage with wider communities and reach under-represented groups.
My best known/used work is probably the Oxford Community Collection Model, which combines online crowdsourcing and targeted engagement to co-create digital collections for research, teaching and learning – all released under Creative Commons. This model has been used around the world to make collections ranging First World War memories to Anglo-Saxon teaching resources. You can read more about it here: http://projects.oucs.ox.ac.uk/runcoco/.
I enjoy innovating with social media, and have helped others to design their own innovative practices. In this area I was awarded the UCISA Amber Miro Memorial Award, and voted one of the 50 most influential UK higher education professionals on social media. You can find me tweeting as @KTDigital.
I have occasionally written things that have been published.
I do other stuff too, mostly parenting wilful children and running (not entirely unrelated activities…).
