Abstract

Lesley English is an experienced library and academic adviser at the University of Cumbria, qualified in learning and teaching in HE, as well as professional librarianship. She has previously worked as a librarian in public libraries in Essex, London and the Furness area before moving into Higher Education at Lancaster University. Lesley, along with a small team of skills and e-learning advisers, created the University’s first MOOCs, which are offered as pre-entry support to students studying at levels 5, 6 and 7. Their work was recognised by the Vice-Chancellor in 2015, who awarded them with the VC’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, and was also part of the nomination which led to the team being shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership & Management Award for Outstanding Library Team in 2016. Outside of work Lesley enjoys walking with her chocolate Labrador, Mabel.
