26th JANUARY 2022 - Following a period of significant growth for the organisation, PebblePad has today announced the landmark appointment of Lisa Gray as Senior Consultant, Learning, Teaching and Assessment.
Lisa will work directly with PebblePad’s executive team to bring value to the organisation’s customer base of nearly 150 HE institutions around the world – as the sector recalibrates and moves forward from a particularly challenging 18 months.
Lisa brings with her more than two decades of experience in the sector. In her 17 years with renowned digital solutions and research provider Jisc, Lisa led a range of innovation and change initiatives on themes including assessment, employability, and curriculum transformation; speaking and writing about this work nationally and internationally. Lisa will bring her knowledge and experience to bear for PebblePad, helping customers address their most pressing issues as well as having an integral role in supporting PebblePad’s continued growth.
Commenting on her appointment, Lisa says: “With an increase in awareness of the value and necessity of digital approaches during the pandemic, as we move away from the initial emergency response period, we know that many universities are focussing their efforts on applying what has been learnt to broader, scalable and sustainable digital initiatives. I’m really excited to be joining a team that has so much experience of enabling the practices which will be key to the sector’s future success."
Kenny Nicholl, Chief Growth Officer at PebblePad, adds: “We’re delighted to welcome Lisa to the PebblePad team, knowing that the organisation and our clients alike will benefit from her years of experience in working with hundreds of institutions around the world to guide their digital journeys.
