While working as a physiotherapist, Linda supervised students and ran training workshops. In doing so, she discovered that she enjoyed educating others. Later, she worked as a problem-based learning (PBL) tutor for UQ medical students for nine years.

In 2006, Linda started working in online course design, developing professional learning and post graduate courses for Queensland Health staff and GPs. After a brief detour developing training resources for a mining company (including games-based training, and training in simulated environments) she returned to UQ as a Curriculum Developer and Designer in the Centre for Online Health (Telehealth).

Linda was approached to be the lead learning designer working on UQ’s first MOOCs in 2013. In this role, she helped to establish systems and processes for MOOC design and development, and later adapted these to support blended learning at UQ as part of the UQ2U project.

Currently, Linda leads the learning design team in the Digital Learning Uplift project.
