Ms Marion Manton (MA (Hons) MSc)
eLearning Research Project Manager
In my role I work closely with academic colleagues and course teams to specify the learning they want to achieve with their programme and to identify the best uses of technology to do this. I also maintains currency with the latest research in eLearning, to ensure that the Department is aware of and exploits the best current knowledge of what works in terms of effective eLearning. I managed the learning design for two programmes (MSc Public Policy and Management, University of York and MA War in the Modern World, Kings College, London) that have been runners up in HEFCE's eTutor of the year competition. I am an active member of the UK eLearning community and regularly take part in eventsI hold an MA (Hons) in History from the University of Edinburgh and an MSc in Information Management from the University of Sheffield. Prior to joining the University I was eLearning Manager at Henley Management College before moving to FTKnowledge where I worked on projects with several leading business schools.
