If you are a regular reader of our staff interviews, you’ll have noticed (we hope!) that quite a lot of our colleagues are also graduates of RGU. That degree of continuity is great: it helps people settle into academic and support roles and it also means they know what the university is like from the student’s perspective, thus making them better able to relate to them and teach and support them as necessary.
Name: Louise Findlay
Job Title: Demonstrator – School of Computing
What does your job at RGU involve?
Demonstrating lab content and helping students by providing feedback and answering their lab and coursework queries.
What attracted you to come to work at RGU?
Since I graduated last year, I wanted to help students, having taken some of the modules recently.
If you weren’t doing this job, what, in an ideal world, would you like to do for a living? When I’m not demonstrating, I’m running my own web development business so most likely that in a full-time role.
Best holiday you’ve had and why?
Italy. The food was great and the weather was excellent. It was a road trip so we went to many different places stopping off at hotels along the way so I saw many different areas of Italy as well as the usual tourist spots.
Favourite TV show?
Right now, The Resident but all-time would be Person of Interest or Human Target.
I’m a big fan of video game music so any of the Supergiant Games soundtracks by Darren Korb or The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary by Koji Kondo. Especially, the orchestral versions.
If you’re going to a restaurant and could only have one thing to eat (one course), what would it be?
Chocolate Fudge Cake. No ice-cream but lots of chocolate fudge sauce.
If you were in charge of the university for one day, what’s the first thing you would do?
Gather feedback from students on how to improve CampusMoodle and being able to locate additional materials easily.
