Meet the TrOn team

Meet the staff members behind the Trainees Online website. We're the ones who are steadily working away ‘behind the curtain’, uploading the authors' content and playing with various media to create those memorable interactive exercises you know and love. It sounds like all fun and games, doesn’t it? But we are also very dedicated in assisting and supporting all our authors with writing high-quality educational material, backed up by research and relevant theory.

 

Please contact us at: tron@rcpsych.ac.uk or 020 7235 2351

 

Want to meet the Trainee Editors as well?

 

Sophie Easton – eLearning Manager

My job @ a glance: coordinating the teams producing Trainees Online, CPD Online and other eLearning projects; editing and producing content for CPD Online modules and podcasts.

 

Sophie has been with the College since 2010, working on the BJPsych Advances journal for a year before moving across to eLearning. She enjoys working with authors on their projects, seeing them through from initial idea to engaging published content that many other College Members will benefit from.

 

Contact me if: you require information about the College's eLearning projects.

 


Vicky Walker – Editorial Assistant

My job @ a glance: overseeing the commissioning, submission and review processes for modules and providing administrative support to the team.

 

Vicky has been working on TrOn from the very beginning, before there was a website, modules or even any authors! She has enjoyed watching TrOn develop into a flourishing resource and is excited to see where it will go next. If you are a prospective or commissioned author or a reviewer, Vicky is likely to be the first member of the team you will speak to.

 

Contact me if: you would like some more information about TrOn; you are interested in writing or reviewing for us; you are a current author and want to extend your deadline for submission or you’re ready to submit a draft or revision.

 


Emma Leishman – Content Editor

My job @ a glance: editing and assisting in creating TrOn modules for the website, including producing various educational media and Flash content for the modules.

 

Fuelled by a deep caffeine addiction, Emma is a bit of a workaholic sometimes working on several modules at once, while organising a stand for the International Congress and offering to assist a colleague with image sourcing. She has worked across all three College websites – RCPsych, CPD Online and now TrOn – and the best thing about her job is the variety of people she gets to work with and the opportunity to learn new things from each of them. Emma is also a very keen baker and loves to test out new creations on her colleagues.

 

Contact me if: you would like to discuss your module, including any questions regarding how to write for TrOn, referencing queries and ideas for interactivity.

 


Mark Turner – Content Editor

My job @ a glance: editing and assisting in creating TrOn modules for the website, including producing various educational media and Flash content for the modules.

 

Mark is the newest addition to the TrOn team, arriving after several years spent creating training material for the Royal Navy – so he’s swapped incomprehensible military acronyms for impenetrable medical terminology! He has a passion for creating interactive content, and loves to share his experience and technical knowledge with the rest of the team.

 

Contact me if: you would like to discuss your module, including any questions regarding how to write for TrOn, referencing queries and ideas for interactivity.

 


Rian Douthwaite – Content Editor

My job @ a glance: editing and assisting in creating TrOn modules for the website, specialising in the production of educational multimedia and interactive content.
 
Rian has been with the College since 2007 and works mainly on the CPD Online website.
 

Mina Kupfermann – Freelance Content Editor

My job @ a glance: editing and assisting in creating TrOn modules for the website, including producing various educational media and Flash content for the modules.

 

Mina is the longest-standing member of the team and has been working with the College since 2006. She is known for her eagle eye, spotting typos at 100 paces. She started out in-house as CPD Online Content Editor and now works as freelance editor from wherever she happens to be based.

 

Contact me if: you would like to discuss anything to do with your module.
