Mimi Weiss Johnson - Senior Educational Technologist, Learning Enhancement and Development

I have over 17 years’ experience in Educational Technology.  I started my career in Higher Education as a Lecturer at SAE Institute/Middlesex University (2001-2007) where I taught Multimedia and Web Design. After 6 years of teaching, I decided to switch the direction of my career to E-Learning.

From 2007-9, I worked as a Learning Technologist at London Metropolitan University where I concentrated on training, support and projects.  From 2009-2018, I worked in the E-Learning Team within the IT department at Imperial College London.  Key areas of my role included managing E-Learning projects, providing training and support on centrally supported systems.

In May 2018, I joined City University as a Senior Educational Technologist (Project Lead) in the Learning Enhancement and Development Department.  One aspect of my role is to manage projects at City including the Learning Analytics Project. I am also part of the Project Office which aims to support and oversee all projects within the Educational Technology team.

I have a Master of Arts Degree in Adult Education and Distance Learning, Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Science and an Associate Degree in Multimedia and Web Design.
