I am the Head of Technical Services for the STEM. The Faculty consists of 700 staff and 1,800 Associate Lecturers. We deliver over 185 modules across undergraduate and postgraduate curriculum, supporting nearly 19,000 students (full time equivalents) which is 29% of the Open University total. I oversee the STEM technology development and technology utilisation strategy, managing all information technology resources of the Faculty. I have primary day-to-day responsibility for technology management of operations in terms of planning, developing, implementing, managing, growing, and maintaining, availability, efficiency and financial viability of all technology related components within the Faculty.
