Federica has been working in the UK Higher Education sector in planning, designing and implementing e-learning and blended learning courses in collaboration with the University's Faculties, by providing expertise in instructional design and advice on pedagogic and regulatory aspects of online delivery since 2005.

She is thrilled to be able to help extend pedagogical innovation in the online space to empower students to think in more sustained and sophisticated ways through collaboration in engaged learning communities. She supports professional development for academic staff, conceiving and running staff development seminars and workshops about the use of online platforms and web tools to enhance and support learning and teaching on both blended and distance learning courses. She is passionate about making education more accessible while creating a collaborative, experiential and social experience. She has been an e-tutor on a variety of online distance learning courses since 2009.

She undertakes research into the use of web 2.0 tools in teaching and learning, evaluates and presents case studies concerning the effective use of technology enhanced learning at national and international conferences.
