e-DIAGNOSTICS IN HUMAN LEARNING
The human learning process is a complex one. Can technology help? This doctoral research paper examines methodologies for using e-learning tools and environments to diagnose errors in the process of solving quadratic equations, and provide feedback to the learner.
Length, approx. 50,000 words.
These technology case studies (for Paessler Systems), just two of a series, were originally written for publication in leading industry magazines, and subsequently used by the customer (Paessler) as promotional tools. I obtained background through face-to-face interviews with the project managers concerned.
SAVING THE PLANET
Today, the reduction of environmental pollutants is a major concern. And it's increasingly difficult to achieve. One approach which is thought to hold real promise is through photocatalysis - the utilisation of “ambient energy” (mainly from the sun). This PhD paper discusses the development of photocatalytic techniques, particularly those based on TiO2, as a realistic way forward in the medium term.
Over the years, I've written literally hundreds of pieces of sales collateral, from brochures to product specs. An in-depth knowledge of the technology concerned isn't essential for this, of course, but it helps.
Information, Communications and Technology infrastructures play a critical role in the way society functions. So it's important that they can withstand disruptive events. This Masters degree paper examines the current resilience of the UK ICT infrastructure, and what can be done to improve it.
Length, approx. 15,000 words.
HOLD THE FRONT PAGE
OK, I admit it - I don't think I've ever actually made the front page. But, during my career, my work (usually under someone else's name) has appeared in a wide range of leading national technology/technical publications, from trade magazines to Sunday supplements.
