Richard is a Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Bath.
His main area of research is the use of digital technology to support learning. He has long term interest in computer supported collaborative, with a particular interest in the role of technology for supporting the resolution of inter-individual conflict. He is currently interested in the use of tablet, such as the iPad, for supporting children’s learning of physics.
A second interest is in the use of digital games for supporting students learning. For example, he has recently been involved in a project exploring the use of a racing car simulation game called ‘Racing Academy’ for supporting students learning of engineering.
Richard has general interest in gender and the use of new information communication technology. His research predominately makes use of experimental methods, and he is a member of the Cognition, Affective Science & Technology Laboratories (CASTL) research group.
