Amanda Smith

An ex-CPS prosecutor and trainer, Amanda has been an OU Law School tutor at levels one and two since 2009. During that time, she has discovered the pleasures and pitfalls of being an OU student by studying for an MA in Online and Distance Education, worked as an Educational Advisor, written tutorial, skills, and research materials, and been an Employability Champion promoting the use of the FutureYOU personal development planning tool. She currently supports other tutors in using Adobe to provide effective and inspirational tutorials and is a keen researcher on the use of digital badges in supporting employability and on the use of reflection.

She sees study as 20% knowledge and 80% knowing what to do with it, which underlies her passion is ensuring students have the necessary skills to succeed with their studies

In her (very little) spare time she can be found walking the hills, tending her garden, travelling Italy, ballroom dancing and knitting to keep warm!
