Profile Sarah Ruston

Sarah Resized for Bb

Senior Learning Technologist

I have worked in AQD for 8 years, and prior to this I worked in LiSS and was the Site Library Manager in Ambleside before moving to CDEPP+ (now AQD) in 2009. I have a degree in Library and Information Studies and two PGCEs. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Roles & responsibilities

Locally known as ‘Mrs PebblePad’, I am the university lead for this system and genuinely believe it’s a really good system for both staff and students to store, collaborate and share their work. The system is accessible 24/7 and is supported by a nifty app called Pebble Pocket. Users can take their account with them when they leave the university and this is free forever. What’s not to like?


In my spare time away from work, I am a keen triathlete (keen not fast!) and have just bought a sea kayak for new and exciting adventures!
