Open Thinkering


Leaving the circus

Information about my move to JISC infoNet to supplement The End of the Beginning:

Why did you leave the Academy?

To cut a long story short, there was a mismatch between my (very specific) job description and my day-to-day duties.


What will you be doing at JISC infoNet?

My position is Researcher/Analyst and I will be putting together infoKits as well as researching into issues that affect the Further Education and Higher Education sector in the UK. Workshops are run by Senior Researchers at JISC, but I’ll be helping out as much as I can!


Is this the end of your teaching career?

I’m 29. I very much doubt that I’ve taught my last lesson in a classroom…


Is your job at JISC a stepping-stone?

Every job is a stepping stone to new opportunities. I’m very excited about my role at JISC and look forward to learning new things.


Can I have your old job at the Academy?

I’d advise against that. And anyway, I’m in no position to influence them!


You’re usually so open about what you do. Why the secrecy?

There was trade union involvement. That’s all I’m saying.
