Course taught: Creative Digital Media

Wendy BickerstaffeWhen did you start working at LMC?
I starting working at Lancaster and Morecambe College in August 2007.  In 2012 I left for a year to work in a Pupil Referral Centre.  I came back to college because I missed it so much.

What brought you to LMC?
I had just returned from living in Australia and saw the job advertised.  I visited college and was really impressed by the department and the media team.

What did you do prior to working here?
I worked for a company that filmed university graduations as a camera operator.  After this I worked as a technical instructor for Wyre NHS in the speech therapy department.  My job involved training staff and young people who were non-verbal to use technology to communicate.  Having been inspired by how much technology can transform young people’s lives and development I went back to University and did a post grad in Information Communication Technology.  I then went on to do my PGCE.  Before I came to college I taught at schools in Blackpool and a Pupil Referral Unit.

What is your favourite thing about your job?
I love teaching the students.  I teach the first year and every year I am inspired by how much the pupils develop throughout the year.  I think college is much more than teaching them subject specific skills and seeing students mature as critical thinkers and independent learners is very rewarding.

What is the best thing about the course you teach?
The students. The technology, I love to teach students new skills and watch them being blown away by what they can achieve. Most of my students love what they are creating and often have to be told to leave at the end of the college day.

What are the best things about working at college?
Working as such a close team in visual and creative studies and supporting and developing good practice with others.  Having a supportive management team who listen to ideas and are keen to develop you as a teacher. Working as a whole college team to support and develop students learning.
