Julia is passionate about digital empowerment for ALL using flexible, innovative, blended learning methods (including making full use of mobile technologies and social media) to enhance life skills and improve employability.
She does not believe that age, gender, experience or level of formal education should be a barrier to new learning.
As a pro-active member of an online Personal Learning Network, she contributes to the sharing of knowledge, information and educational best practice on local, national and global stages.
This network has provided a sustainable and enriching personal experience (both on and offline) which she believe has also considerably enhanced the quality of her own teaching and research.
As a Tutor and Digital Skills Adviser on a flexible, full-time Level 4 Certificate in Higher Education Skills for the Workplace program, she provides specialised support and teaching methods to build students’ confidence and help them acquire new skills to progress in the modern workplace.
In addition to her teaching duties, she also runs her own freelance social media + digital literacy skills consultancy and advice service at http://ffynnonweb.com.
