I love students (honest), but some of them require more effort than others ...
Some jokes or sayings
about learning and teaching.
Learning and Teaching
Innovations you should consider adopting right now
(Electronic Voting Systems) / PRS / "clickers": gadgets in lecture theatres.
PAL (Peer Assisted Learning)
PAL at GU
Assessment by pairwise ranking (a.k.a. "ACJ")
Assessment and Feedback
The most vigorous intellectual work on education here, (since Alex Johnstone
left and his centre died) is the
CCSE (Centre for Computing Science Education)
led by Quintin Cutts.
I have a set of pages about its reading group, and the issues we discuss there.
Student retention and dropout
Student generated PDP PDP
My psychology option course on this
ASMR which basically is about the peculiar comfort of watching some vacuous videos and the soothing response this produces in many people.

This Steve Draper is an academic in the Psychology School at the University of Glasgow, in Scotland. I have done research on HCI (Human Computer Interaction), IR (Information Retrieval), on using technology in learning and teaching and how to evaluate that; but now focus almost entirely on theory and practice of learning and teaching in HE. My teaching is mainly on education issues in HE, and on positive psychology. I have lived in a London suburb (where I grew up), Brighton, San Diego, and Glasgow, with brief periods in rural South Africa (near Eshowe) and New Haven, Connecticut.

My web pagesI've got extensive web pages, with most things I've written since 1999. Currently the biggest areas are probably:
Other ways to access my web pagesMost of what I've done is on my web pages in one way or another, so a quick google may get you there.
However when I'm using that method to re-find something it is surprising what keywords I would now use do not find the page I'm thinking of. Almost everything substantial that I've written is there, mixing publications and unpublished things. A lot of the latter was aimed not at journals but at potential adopters of educational ideas and methods i.e. dissemination.
Quite a bit of my teaching may be there, but in latter years these were hidden in learning environments so its patchy and not well indexed.
