Professor, Institute for Educational Cybernetics
Biographical Info: I have a background in the arts, and over the years I have taught at all levels from primary to industry. In the early days of personal computing I became fascinated by the potential of technology to support the teaching and learning process, and I spent a number of years creating interactive CDs and applications. In attempting to understand what was happening in the use of these applications I became interested in the enabling technologies and data structures supported these application. This led to an engagement with cybernetics, which offered a way of analysing the interaction between institutional organisation, technology and pedagogy which was not available from other perspectives.
