We had a great session about Social Media Strategy. Bex made everything easy to understand with clear direction on social media ‘dos and don’ts’. It was fun and informative and we all took a lot away from it. We had positive feedback from everyone who attended, and all are now busy tweeting away and working towards getting the best from their facebook accounts!

Just to say thank you for the “social media for the scared” yesterday. It was really inspiring. I came home and signed up for Facebook, I am now lurking on Twitter and have been having fun with Prezi… next week the blog!

I’ve been to two of Bex’s sessions (the ones on the use of Facebook and Twitter for academic purposes), and they have inspired me to experiment with social media in communicating with trainees and supporting them. I found the sessions informative, accessible and directly relevant to my needs. Bex was flexible to the needs of the group members, and adapted the material to our particular teaching contexts. Outside the sessions, Bex has been available to answer questions by email, and I have found the on-line resources a good source of follow-up, which I have gone back to many times(!) in setting up my own resources. I’m already signed up for a session on Survey Monkey!

Bex took the seed of an idea – BigRead2010 – and expanded it into a successful, snazzy website which looks good and attracted lots of people. Her work is reliable and she integrates lots of other people very well. She works with passion and professionalism. Bex is a social media whizz. She knows her stuff and puts it into practice on her sites. Great work!

Bex was a great example of good project management – taking an incoherent brief and shaping it into a proposal, liaising effectively with all interests to deliver a quality result and then training us in the ongoing administration of our website. This really kick-started our social media presence.

The learning pages on the Portal are looking like a breath of fresh air has been blown into them and the feedback so far has been very positive both in terms of functionality and looks. We (in the Learning and Teaching Development Unit) are very pleased with its new look and intuitive layout.

“Dr Bex Lewis was the designer and implementer of a pioneering website at the university which aimed to support lecturers in teaching about web design. This was at a time when web sites were put together hurriedly with many basic mistakes. That website is still available and and stands up remarkably well, giving sound advice. Would that more web designers would take the time to look at it”
David Rush, 2009

Dr Bex Lewis has excellent skills as a web designer. She took a tired and worn out website which I had established years back and she refreshed it, not just in design, but by successfully adding to its content, something which I think comes naturally from her strong academic background and awareness of quality sources of information. I really recommend her to anyone seeking the same.

What impressed me most about Bex’s work was her ability to take a brief from a total web site novice and make sense of it and produce in a rapid time a site that more than met my expectations. Very well laid out with imiginative links from what have been an unpromising brief!”
