Personal Statement

I am a lecturer in information technology education at the School of Education, University of Southampton where I completed my PhD in pedagogy and the teaching of computers with metaphors. I coordinate the PGCE for IT teachers and contribute to the MSc and MA(Ed) programmes for teachers and trainers in computer based learning. I also teach a research methods course and have developed many on-line resources to support elearning and blended teaching.

ICT Interests

My research focus is pedagogy and the teaching of difficult concepts in and with computers including elearning and computer assisted assessment. I've published work in many curriculum journals including Mapping News, Mathematics Teaching, TTRB, InteracTive and ITTE. I have written Learning and Teaching Using ICT in Secondary Schools (Achieving QTS) Learning Matters.
