About me

A short bio for anyone who is interested.

I am Daniel Clark, and I am a Senior Lecturer in Accounting and Finance at University Centre Shrewsbury, where I teach on a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. I also have a long-standing interest in use of educational technology and teach a module on student learning and support a my former employer BPP University. In March 2014, I completed an MA in Online & Distance Education with the Open University, which encouraged me to start blogging and has been the focus of many of my posts.

In terms of my career background, I came across the idea of putting your cv into Wordle, to give a general overview (thanks to Terry Anderson for the idea). This was the result:

If you want something more logical and comprehensive, you can find it on my LinkedIn profile.

Outside work, I am married with two children who keep me busy. I also enjoy reading, gardening, walking the dog, music and watch Shrewsbury Town FC home matches when I can. Photos and updates from our garden are recorded on our Tumblr account.

In 2011, we moved from London (where I have lived for most of my life) to Shrewsbury in Shropshire, attracted by the beauty of the town and its surroundings, the interesting stuff going on and generally the quality of life.

I like using Twitter where I tweet about anything that interests me – mostly education and business issues, but it can include any of the topics above. I have also set up a page at about.me which serves as a “hub” for my online activity.

  1. Hi Daniel,
    I’ve been reading your post about eportfolios and delving a bit deeper realised:
    1. that you might be using PebblePad because you work for BPP
    2. you live just down the road from PP HQ (we’re in Telford).
    If you’d like to find out any more about what we do (or indeed what’s imminent with the entirely new PP+) you’re most welcome to call in.
    Good luck with your course
    Shane
    (Development Director, PebblePad)

    • Thanks Shane – I will probably take you up on the offer as it would be interesting. I will contact you via Twitter.

      We don’t generally use PebblePad in our part of the business, but I have been able to get access to a PP account.
