Computers and teaching

I have been teaching students to use computers and to think about computers since the early eighties, and to use and think about the World Wide Web since it was invented.


In 1985 I wrote a series of computer programs that run the English Department at Birmingham University. Until 1998 these comprised the most sophisticated computer administrative system in any Department in the University. Mentioned in Despatches, Teaching Quality Assessment, 1997.
