Jackie leads on learning and teaching related services and projects at Mimas, and has been instrumental in opening services up through Creative Commons licences. The EU Leonardo funded Hair.Net project , which helps fill a strategic skills gap in Europe, was made possible due to the content being shared through CC licences. The Hairdressing Training service won the prestigious international award for innovation in tertiatry education in 2008. Jackie also directed the high profile SCARLET (now SCARLET+) project which is using Augmented Reality to deliver Special Collections and now other digital materials in teaching and learning to enhance the student learning experience .

Jackie provides leadership for socieoconomic data services, including ESDS International and the Census Dissemination Unit. These services support academic and teaching use of real world data provided through intergovernmental organisations (such as the OECD, IMF and World Bank) and statistical organisations including the Office for National Statistics (ONS). She has recently undertaken a teaching fellowship with the Open University through the SCORE initiative to find best practice in teaching undergraduates quantitative skills using real world data.
