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.
