Nice to meet you!

LearnJam exists to contribute to the future of humanity by making the experience of learning more effective for everyone involved.

We’re on a mission to build better systems of education and work.

We help organisations understand their purpose and change the way they operate to create learning experiences that fulfil that purpose.

Our collective expertise combines learning design, teaching, publishing, edtech, management consultancy and educational systems change.

Our team

LUCY WILLIAMS

Lucy has worked in education and learning for 15 years and specialises in learning design, systems change and holistic ways of working. A firm believer in doing inner work alongside outer work, she’s driven by the idea that our education and work systems can do better in welcoming, nourishing and growing the humans we need to be now, for the future.

You’ll find Lucy creating space for new ideas, unlearning and emergence in our everyday practice, and thinking about how we learn forwards to bridge the gap between what we say and what we do. Outside work, she’s usually found reading, gardening, or walking with her dogs, Phyllis and Prue.

JO SAYERS

Jo is a learning designer, product manager and task ticker. Jo uses his logical, analytical approach to better understand and solve internal and client challenges. Jo started teaching in Istanbul in 2006, before moving into edtech, learning design and educational systems change. He has a strong sense of what is fair and just, and gets energy from projects that are in pursuit of a better and more balanced world for us to enjoy. 

In our work you’ll find Jo tackling problems, collaborating on creative idea generation and carrying out legal, operational and financial tasks. Jo’s based in North-East London but is happiest when in the sea.

KATY ASBURY

Katy has a background in teaching, ELT publishing and creative writing. As a learning designer, Katy creates impactful, inclusive learning experiences using a combination of proven pedagogy and engaging content. She uses her deep learning design skills, empathy and insight to bring the voice of the learners to content creation projects at LearnJam.

In our work, you’ll find Katy writing and editing content, running storyboarding workshops, making improvements to our learning design tools, and planning our next team meetup. A keen hiker, she recharges by roaming the hills of England, Spain, or her native New Zealand.

REBECCA THORNTON

Rebecca left the corporate world in pursuit of purpose; originally drawn to LearnJam to work on improving diversity, equity and inclusion in digital education – believing in the importance of education but that it does not serve everybody well, and could do so much more if it did. Her background in strategic risk consultancy brings problem solving, conceptual thinking, communication, and curiosity.

In our work, you’ll find Rebecca asking questions, synthesising, shortening paragraphs, and promoting Agile. Outside of work, you’ll find Rebecca on the five-a-side pitch.

DELPHINE PHIN

As a lifelong linguist, Delphine’s driving force is to understand a country’s culture more deeply and make meaningful relationships as a result. She approaches learning design in the same way, seeking to reduce the gap between the learner and course content. Throughout her varied career as editor, teacher, project manager and learning designer, her constant has been a desire to communicate information in as meaningful and impactful a way as possible.

Delphine is at her best when juggling projects with a different focus. She enjoys taking time out to have a stretch before attacking her to-do list with renewed energy.

Who we’re working with

As well as our full-time team, we’re currently working alongside a lovely bunch of close collaborators who bring their expertise, energy and commitment to projects at LearnJam:

LAURA PATSKO

Laura brings a background in teaching, learning, research and linguistics to a wide range of projects at LearnJam, and specializes in communicating clearly in English in international contexts. She also co-hosts our podcast!

Laura is based in Athens, Greece, where she also teaches and trains volunteers working with refugee communities across the country. When she’s not working, you’ll usually find her making something or exploring the city with her awesome little dog, Hero.

PATRICK ALLISON

After joining LearnJam in 2017, Patrick found he had a natural aptitude for the technical side of learning design. Since then he has developed his skills in the practical aspects of content creation, and takes satisfaction in overcoming challenges and seeing a project through to completion. 

In our work you’ll find Patrick offering solutions and working hard to produce the best user experience possible. Outside of work he can often be found exploring medieval buildings and ancient ruins.

BERTA ROJALS

Once a primary school teacher and anthropologist, Berta changed career during her 6 years in London. She became interested in design thinking and product design, and how they can help improve learners’ lives. 

In our work, you’ll find Berta empathising with learner problems and designing solutions to tackle them, with a strong sense of optimisation. 

Berta tries to live a life that is less harmful for the planet, and is happiest when running up and down the hills of her beloved Barcelona.

LAURIE HARRISON

Laurie co-founded LearnJam in 2013 and is now a freelance online course consultant, trainer and project manager. He has a background in senior digital roles in educational publishing and brings a deep knowledge of learning design and product strategy to projects at LearnJam.
