Personal profile

Biography

Cheryl Reynolds has worked in education for the last 18 years, beginning as a teacher of Science in Further Education and developing through roles that involved the innovative use of technology in teaching and learning to her current role as a Teacher Educator. She became a senior lecturer in post-compulsory education and training at the University of Huddersfield in 2005. Since 2006 she has been the coordinator for the University's online ‘Teaching a Specialist Subject’ provision and in 2008 she was appointed as elearning manager across the University’s Consortium of 24 partner colleges. Throughout her career Cheryl has promoted both digital literacy and the practical value of theory to practitioners. She strongly believes in the importance of both of these areas in empowering students, engaging them in education and in citizenship more generally and giving them a voice.


Cheryl’s extensive work in using technology in teaching and learning means that this is where much of her research interest lies. Her doctoral work centres particularly around the use of social networking as a platform for the delivery of master’s level courses. She was also a co-leader of the JISC-funded ‘Evaluating the Benefits of Electronic Assessment Management’ or EBEAM project, which explored her introduction of electronic assessment for large cohorts of trainee teachers across the North of England. Her work in teacher education has also led to her appointment as the Social Media Manager for the Journal of Vocational Education and Training and most recently she has been appointed as Project Manager for the HEFCE-funded ‘Interventions for Success’ project. She manages the project across four participating institutions (Manchester Metropolitan University and the Universities of Huddersfield, Coventry and Lincoln) in the design and delivery of interventions aimed at retaining and improving the outcomes for students at risk of leaving education or of underachieving.
