I am a member of The National Trust Learning and Engagement Panel, and on the Board of the Open College of the Arts. I support Heritage Lottery Fund projects as an Expert Mentor and I am also an HEA Associate. Until its demise I was on the Board of the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council and have recently carried out projects on Governance for the Leadership Foundation and on the NTFS for the HEA.
From 2000 – 2007 I was Director of Learning and Teaching, York St John University where I set up the Fountains Learning Centre and led the C4C (Collaborating for Creativity) CETL. Before then I was Head of Learning Resources and Curator of the National Arts Education Archive at Bretton Hall College of the University of Leeds. I ran a professional Masters programme for Librarians at what is now Leeds Met and have also designed and delivered a range of short courses overseas for the British Council. I was co- founder and Chair of Commanet: the community archives network from 2000 – 2008, setting up and supporting over 300 digital archives in the UK and developing the successful Community Memories scheme for Canada’s Department of National Heritage.
