Lorna M. Campbell

Lorna M CampbellI have over fifteen years experience working in education technology and interoperability standards.  I joined Cetis in 2002 as Educational Content Special Interest Group Coordinator and later became one of the Cetis Assistant Directors.

My main areas of expertise include digital infrastructure for open educational resources, open education policy, technologies for supporting the management and distribution of educational content, metadata, vocabularies, etextbooks and digital repositories.  I am an experienced project manager with over ten years experience of coordinating workplans, delivering outputs, organising events and overseeing project finances.

I have been responsible for coordinating and delivering technical support for a wide range of Jisc development programmes including Exchange for Learning, Digital Repositories and Preservation, UK OER and OER Rapid Innovation.

I have also represented the UK F/HE on a number of standards bodies including the British Standards Institute, IMS Global, the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative and CEN / ISSS Learning Technologies Workshop.  In addition I have tracked a number of international technical developments of interest to the UK F/HE sector, most recently the Learning Registry project, initially funded by the US Departments of Education and Defense.

I maintain a highly visible social media profile which I use to disseminate Cetis activities and highlight news and developments of relevance to the community.  I maintain a professional Cetis blog and have written a wide range of briefing papers, reports, books and journal papers.

My current areas of interest and activity include open educational resources, open education policy for Scotland,  European etextbook requirements and the interface between learning and content analytics.
