Rachel Applegate SWC Learning Technologist in the Centre for Learning and Teaching
Staff Wellbeing Champion
I provide pedagogical advice and day-to-day support to staff for learning technologies such as Moodle and Zoom. My role supports the development and enhancement of our online and blended teaching and learning provision.
It's important that we challenge stigma around mental health issues and create an environment where we can talk openly about mental health and wellbeing, without fear of judgement. Wellbeing Champions can provide a listening ear and can help signpost support for wellbeing and mental health.
I enjoy walking in nature (preferably on top of a hill, we have plenty nearby), yoga and pilates and silk painting. I also practice daily mindfulness meditation.
