Ian joined the UEA Learning Technology team in July 2015 after spending 23 years at Colchester Institute, (a partner college of the University of Essex), as a lecturer, head of department, quality manager and eventually, Dean of Higher Education.

He was one of the first tutors to use the World Wide Web for teaching, in 1995, and later led the College's Moodle project, implementing the virtual learning environment for online assessment and feedback.

Prior to working in education, Ian was employed by Philips, Digital, Compaq and Hewlett Packard as a programmer and support analyst working on early document image management systems.

He considers himself "an avid technologist with a passion for education" and says "I have never ceased to use digital technologies to enhance the learning of my students and to try and keep up to date with new technical developments and ways of teaching and learning".
