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 pages

I've got extensive web pages, with most things I've written since 1999. Currently the biggest areas are probably:
  • (Other) things I've written, most recent first
  • Educational lit. references
  • Re-engineering assessment practices A grant.
  • EVS (Electronic Voting Systems) / PRS / "clickers": gadgets in lecture theatres.
  • Educational Podcasting
  • PAL (Peer Assisted Learning)
  • Dropout Student retention and dropout
  • Research-teaching linkages

  • mmmHealth

    Other ways to access my web pages

    Most of what I've done is on my web pages in one way or another, so a quick google may get you there.
  • Full text search:

    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 Almost everything substantial that I've written is there, mixing publications and unpublished things.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.

  • A reverse chronological list of education related documents
  • Most documents, subdivided under headings

    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.

  • Nearly all my talks from October 1997 are on the web represented by title, abstract, slides; and listed in reverse chronological order: Talks.
