After graduating from the University of Sheffield, Matt moved to Japan where he began his career as an English language teacher. After three years, Matt returned to the UK where he continued to teach at the English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC) of the University of Sheffield, developing his understanding of learning and teaching through the Cambridge DELTA, an advanced teaching qualification.
Matt has always had a passion for educational technology, incorporating technology both in class and as part of homework activities in order to enhance student’s learning experience. This led to Matt moving from teaching to a role as a learning technologist where he develops online courses and self-study materials as well as advising teachers at the ELTC on the use of educational technologies.
In addition to his work at the University of Sheffield, Matt joined St Christopher’s CARE in April 2021 where he is responsible for developing the use of educational technologies to enhance both online and blended teaching and to develop new, fully online courses.
To further his knowledge in the fields of education and educational technology, he has recently passed with a distinction the MA in Digital Technology, Communication and Education from the University of Manchester.
