Margaret Sharp, Baroness Sharp of Guildford, came to KMi this afternoon as part of her visit to the Open University. Her interest in coming to KMi was to discuss the effective use and development of new technologies in learning. Baroness Sharp is the Liberal Democrat Spokesperson on Higher Education in the House of Lords. She has a distinguished background in local politics and in public life, as well as having had a strong academic career at the LSE and the University of Sussex. As part of the Liberal Democrat Education team she has been working on a total re-think of the party's higher education policy. Her visit to the University was part of that effort.
