I’m Christine (she/her) and I am a lecturer in user experience and a multidisciplinary designer.
I have worked in higher education since 2019, and have both a PGCE and Fellowship of HE (FHEA). At SODA, I teach across various degree programmes including Web & User Experience, Digital User Experience, and Creative Digital Design. My active learning approach to teaching embeds industry practices to prepare students and apprentices for the creative and digital sectors.
Before I moved into higher education, I worked in industry across the disciplines of user experience, digital media, and graphic design. I spent much of my career as a UX practitioner at the BBC. Here I worked on different products such as Sport, Homepage, Interactive TV, Bitesize, and R&D (Research & Development). I led and collaborated on a variety of projects, using design thinking, user research, and problem-solving to answer challenging UX questions.
