My interests are in the use of web-based resources for enhancing learning outcomes from traditional methods of teaching at university level. This work has recently been acknowledged via a prestigious Provosts Teaching Award at UCL.

Recently I have been exploring the use of video lectures to create a virtual library to support postgraduate teaching and I have also been working with a software developer (Learnexx 3D) to develop 3D virtual lab simulations to be used in pre-lab preparation. A demo of the software can be found in the following link to the Learnexx simulation

This work has been supported by a variety of grants including, most recently, funding from UCL:

Enhancing the Chemistry programme using Virtual Learning Environments (VLE)

UCL Futures Grant

Developing web-based prelab tutorial support for teaching in the chemistry laboratory

UCL E-learning Development Grant
