|Kirsteen Macdonald & Dr Cathy Minett-Smith|
Kirsteen joined Middlesex in 2001, and was based first in the Business School and since 2008 in the Centre for Learning and Teaching Enhancement. She has extensive experience of advising and supporting the use of learning technologies and the virtual learning environment both for MDX London colleagues and partners and branch campuses (Dubai and Mauritius). She has also taught on the MDX International Foundation Programme and has experienced some of the challenges of co-ordinating the delivery of a module running simultaneously in London and Dubai. More recently Kirsteen has been working closely with programme teams on the development of online distance education programmes where communication and collaboration are central to the success of the programmes and a key player in terms of student satisfaction.
