    Hello everyone!

    I am a graduate teaching assistant and research student at Brunel University in the Department of Information Systems and Computing. I was previously awarded a BSc in Computer Science and an MA in Digital Games Theory & Design. My work is all about how to teach computer programming more effectively, somewhat topical in the news recently, and as you might have guessed it involves games. Or perhaps more accurately, a series of quantitative studies on narrative-driven synthetic worlds with embedded e-learning systems to provide situated learning that scaffolds the cognitive-affective predictors of success in developing programming competency for tertiary students in UK educational institutions.

    Yay! Ahem...

    I also occasionally get kidney stones, which hurt a lot.

    Also, the rules do not seem to me to be adequately explained. I have already encountered an alert from the administrators, although I am not really convinced that linking to non-commercial careers advice from the websites of industry veterans, industry journalists and professional bodies was a form of "advertising" or was an "inappropriate link" given the context of helping a potential student asking about the appropriateness of a particular university course.

    Meh...oh well!


    With Regards,
