Goodbye to Melissa Highton

Pitt Rivers - Party view Lo resAt the end of June we said goodbye to Melissa, who after six years in Oxford has moved to a new post at the University of Edinburgh. Melissa joined as Head of the Learning Technologies Group and subsequently became Co-Director of Academic IT Services with responsibility for learning and teaching after the LTG merged with the Research Support team. We will be forever appreciative of the energy with which Melissa drove the production and promotion of open educational resources at Oxford and built the OxTALENT awards from a low-key lunchtime event to the high-profile ‘red carpet’ ceremony which is one of the high points of the Academic IT year. With characteristic originality and aplomb, Melissa chose the Pitt Rivers Museum for her leaving party, with guests sipping Prosecco and nibbling tasty cup-cakes while browsing the cabinets of curiosities. We send every good wish to Melissa as she embarks on the next exciting stage of her career.
