Jennie Blake

Co-facilitator, Co-organizer

Grew up in California, but now calls the UK home. I’m the Head of Teaching and Learning Development at the University of Manchester Library and also Academic Lead for Student Success for Manchester’s Institute of Teaching and Learning. I research, teach and collaborate on questions around belonging, access, equitable practice and working with students as partners. I am committed to working towards a version of higher education that is inclusive, accessible and a power for good in the world.

Terminally online, and always up for a chat, you can find me on Mastodon at:

Why I’m in MYFest: The power of a community working together, the chance to learn, to find some food for thought and then the energy to put it into action.
