Philippa Hardman

Philippa Hardman is VP Learning at Aula. Philippa is a proud northerner who, having worked in Europe, the US and South Africa, gleefully returned to her homeland in Manchester 5 years ago. She is an academic by training with a passion for technology-enhanced learning. Philippa spent around 15 years as a teacher in higher education where she gained a reputation for going rogue and using off-list technologies to engage her students. She spent a number of years as Head of Blended Learning at Teach First before taking on the role of Chief Learning Officer at an OPM, where she worked with a number of partners from higher education, government, and the third sector. Philippa is still an affiliated scholar at Cambridge University and enjoys working at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and hot-off-the-press research into best practices in teaching and learning.
