terese award Our own Terese Bird has been Highly Commended in the ALT Learning Technologist of the Year 2010 awards. The award was presented by Professor Sugata Mitra.

ALT (Association for Learning Technology) is the main professional body for learning technologists in the UK, and Terese's excellent result builds upon the 2009 Team award which was won jointly by Beyond Distance.  

The judges' said of Terese:

"[She] has managed in a year to spearhead and implement three projects. The Learning Futures Festival was a fully online week long international academic conference. The Duckling project established effective methods of converting course notes for display on Sony ebook readers. The Graduate School Media Zoo provided postgraduate students across the university with training on how to integrate technology into their research."

The judges were impressed by:

    • the breadth of Terese's work in the use of learning technology;
    • the value for money that her work represents;
    • the openness and self criticality that her work displays.

Terese joined Beyond Distance in July 2009 and has been a valued member of the team from the start, bringing both considerable experience and an innovative approach to problem solving to her job. This has been recognised by the ALT award.

Well done, Terese!
