I started work at the University in an IT support role for the Faculty of Business, responsible for the IT equipment. I soon realised working with people was much more rewarding, so progressed to teaching IT applications to university students and staff. I have many years' experience training and supporting students to use Microsoft Office applications. I also have experience delivering training to organisations outside the university (including the NHS).

I am based in the Luton Learning Resources Centre and I work Wednesdays and Thursday (mornings) and Friday (all day).


Barry

PAD Tutor (Computer Skills)

E: barry.poulter@beds.ac.uk

I started working for the University as a PAD Trainer, supporting students with their academic writing. I have since developed expertise in the use of computer programs required for the University and now split my time between delivering academic writing sessions and computer skills workshops and one-to-ones. My main areas of interest are the process of writing independent projects/dissertations, and the process of personal development experienced by University students.

I am currently based in Luton, and work Monday-Thursday 10am to 6pm, and Fridays 10am to 5.30pm.
