about kate

Kate HuntI am a learning designer and editor with particular expertise in designing and developing online and blended learning, designing print resources for distance learning, editing academic papers and educational resources, and writing plain English.

My background as an editor for distance material has given me valuable experience in developing sound learning material across all levels of tertiary education.

I have worked in the ITP sector in both distance and campus-based institutions—editing material across all levels and many subject areas.

In the ITO sector I have advised on the quality of print and online resources, and developed assessments. I continue to work on other projects in this sector—such as investigating the potential for a preferred provider scheme, researching the reasons for success/failure, writing industry sector training plans, and reviewing and updating learning materials.

A 2008–2009 project involved working with university library staff to increase their instruction design skills for writing instructional guides. The project included developing a comprehensive style guide for their organisation.

In more recent years, I have worked with a number of organisations to improve their training programmes, and compile resources and handbooks/manuals. I also work with international colleagues on global projects.

My role for the Journal of Open, Flexible and Distance Learning has evolved from copy editor to being responsible for copy editing, quality, and presentation. I am happy to give advice to writers on how to present their articles for submission to any academic journal, and to help with detailed bibliographic referencing.

I have a wealth of experience in working with organisations to develop style guides (essential tools for creating consistently high-quality documents) and user manuals.
