Last September I started full time as a lecturer at Oxford Brookes University in Publishing Media.

After a Christmas full of marking, focus has returned to the new semester. With a little time to prepare in January, the current semester hosts my most ambitious module yet. It aims to change how we teach software design skills in a classroom environment, and the first pieces of feedback are positive. I do miss the energy of the city, the opportunities London brings, and the people that come along with that. I miss welcoming new students on campus at General Assembly, organising meetups for London freelancers, and telling stories at the StorySLAM.

In saying that, I’m excited about starting a new chapter, and thankful to be offered such an amazing opportunity to contribute to higher education.
