I am a professional award-winning storyteller and singer, business owner and sessional academic. Since 2010, I have worked as a tutor and lecturer for Storytelling ENG03355, in the School of Education in the Summer session. I have B.A from U.Q and a Dip Ed in Secondary Education (English) from SCU. Since 2011, I have also been a guest lecturer for Occupational Therapy students. In 2012, with FLDS, I created several video student resources for the Storytelling Unit, which were commissioned by the School of Education. Here is the introductory video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1Tc6RlRnaI&t=8s I was also commissioned to make a video called 'Supercharging your Presentations' when I was a Teaching Assistant for the SCU Business School, marking digital stories and digital oral presentations on marketing principles. In 2017, the latter video will be used by the Student Engagement Team within the 'Introduction to Presentations' module to support new students to SCU. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvL0fDgAUpg I am highly conversant with both storytelling and presentation methodology and familiar with current digital assessing systems. I am committed to offering high quality feedback to enrich student development. I love working independently and collaboratively.
