I have taught modules for computer science, psychology and digital humanities students at undergraduate and postgraduate level. I take a research-led approach to teaching, fostering curiosity and supporting students to develop the skills to pursue that curiosity. I believe dialogue is an integral part of the learning process and seek to create teaching environments that facilitate both tentative and robust discussion.
Design for Human Interaction – Queen Mary University of London
For the academic years 2015-16 and 2016-17 I was the module leader for this course, delivered to undergraduate and postgraduate students in Psychology and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). I developed and delivered the lectures, coursework and examinations. Using a research-led approach (drawing on literature from psychology, sociology and computer science) this course explored how developments in information technology have radically altered the nature of human communication.
