I joined the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hertfordshire in September
2001, and I was there for almost 12 years. In this time, I held a number of
responsibilities in both academic teaching and administration. I have taught at all levels
of the degree, from first year undergraduate to M.Sc., and been involved in small classes
of half a dozen students, one on one tuition, and lectured to classes of over 200 students.
I have been involved in curriculum development, provided references for students, sat on
boards awarding student results, attended open days and helped students through a wide
variety of issues and problems.
I have been involved in teaching a range of subjects, from beginners Java programming, to
artificial intelligence, to web services. I have experience tutoring on campus students,
online students, and students through partnered institutions. I am experienced in the setting
of final exams and coursework, and planning and structure of teaching modules.|
I have considerable experience of a variety of administration duties, from Programme management
to student administration. These responsibilities require me to see both the perspective of the
institution and the viewpoint of its students, and to be up to date with the regulations and well
versed in the consequences and issues surrounding all aspects of a changing degree programme.|
