In 1991, she completed a PGCE at Cambridge University. Thereafter, she moved to the University of Dundee in 1999, where she studied for a Master’s degree in Applied Computing, which she combined with a 3-year research assistant post on a European-funded eLearning project. This was followed by a PhD. in the School of Education at Dundee. She currently represents the University on the SHED (Scottish Higher Education Developers) group.
