Kathryn’s main work focuses on our learning platform, TheologyX. She runs the helpdesk for technical issues and new partnership enquires for TheologyX, and supports the work of the College through the delivery of CliffX and the Methodist Church in Britain’s MCBX. Kathryn also works with our global partners, ensuring those who use TheologyX as their own learning management system can get the most out of it as well as sharing good practice and experience of how to use TheologyX well for education and training. Having been instrumental in setting up the learning platform, she is affectionately referred to as ‘the Empress of TheologyX’. Kathryn works with the faculty delivery team to build the courses for the Mission and Ministry Development units and other online courses offered by the College. As part of the innovation team, she works to ensure new technologies function well with the learning platform and where appropriate trains staff to ensure smooth delivery and supports and encourages student use of these.
