Key quotes:  it’s very different working and teaching online – you have to have a different way of thinking” … “in terms of the material, you need to be able to break it down; you need to have differentiation in the lesson” … “it’s bite sized teaching and can reach a wider audience” … as technology enhanced learning coordinator, I have to look at the pedagogical side of learning and teaching in a digital way – and how we marry that with what’s going on at Central Saint Martins” … “I’m not what you would call a techie person – I’m one of these people that like to experiment – I’m as comfortable in front of a computer as I am in a classroom working on a mannequin and can happily switch from one to the other” …
