Teaching interests

I have always enjoyed teaching, both at high school and University level.
Over my career my teaching has evolved from:
Physics and Mathematics and Science Education and supervising student teachers on placement in schools (1970s)
to Programming, Simulations and New Communications Technologies (1980s)
then Digital Media (1990s)
and now Information Technology, Information Technology Applications, Computer Security and Business Information Systems (mid 90s to present)
The evolution has been due to recognising the need for new areas of teaching as technology has advanced and being prepared to develop new topics (subjects) even though it is very time consuming as text books have generally not been available when I started teaching the areas. My previous teaching has always been taken over by other staff.
I have always enjoyed using new technology in my teaching.
Currently I am also enjoying teaching my research students how to do research.
