I'm joining the HEA in July after 18 years at NatCen Social Research. My new role is all about inspiring excellence in teaching & learning in higher education. I'm excited about building new networks and bringing together like-minded people within and outside of HE to create innovative ways to enhance professional development for social scientists.
My career began in qualitative social research and I'm committed to promoting quality in social science through knowledge exchange and capacity building. In 2012 I co-founded a thriving international network of researchers using social media for research #NSMNSS.
I'm passionate about learning, leading change & helping people and organisations identify and reach their goals. I'm a Fellow of the CIPD and of the LPI and have worked across the academic, public and third sectors. I co-authored Corporate Earthquakes a digital hack, chosen as a finalist for the MIX Digital Freedom Challenge and, also in 2014, I published a crowd sourced book of blogs 'Social Media in Social Research'.
I'm always keen to meet new people, share ideas and challenges so do look me up, you can find me on Twitter @jess1ecat.
