Research projects

  • Studio-based learning,
  • mobile computing and novice programmers.
  • Universal Design. UX. How the internet is changing art.

My recent research investigated the effectiveness of combining a studio-based learning pedagogy with the contextualised motivational aspect of application development for smartphones to help overcome the barriers novice programmers face.
