(True nature revealed)
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science
the University of Toronto
in 1983 under the supervision of Dr. Derek Corneil. My research interests include
computer education for very young learners
educational uses of digital technology
Since January 2003 I have been a
Dispute Resolution Advisor. Students who are unsure how to proceed in
situations of alleged academic dishonesty, requirement to withdraw, or
other negative decisions made by the University administration or by
instructors are encouraged to contact the Coordinator of Dispute
Resolution Mechanisms, Mr. Harry Smith,

In 2004 I was asked to articulate my philosophy of teaching. Here it is.
From 2004 to 2008 I was the Director of the Queen's Enrichment Studies Unit. The Unit offers exciting and challenging mini-courses to students in Grades 6 through 12.
I was born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia, but I have lived in Ontario since 1979, and in the city of Kingston since 1983.
