Personal profile


Dr Stewart has worked in the area of HCI, IT and multimedia research and education for over 20 years. He has a great deal of experience in many fields from working in various departments, disciplines and positions. His academic background reflects this diversity with a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Nottingham and an MSc in Molecular Genetics and a BSc in Genetics (from the universities of Leicester and Nottingham respectively).

He is the Lecturer for the MSc in Digital Games and Business Innovation at the Serious Games Institute, Coventry University.

Dr Stewart's doctoral research (A Cultural Education Model: Design and Implementation of Adaptive Multimedia Interfaces in eLearning) consists of examining the effect that TEL is having on cultural education and how HCI impacts on this. This research direction addresses the rapid spread of technologies (the Internet, the Web, various eLearning applications) whose development has often been rooted in Western (US English) culture, how the globalisation of education through eLearning can be best be applied, so that learners receive appropriately personalised interface in their lessons. By bringing a more unbiased and personal approach to HCI and eLearning through the application of cultural variables to a user model and personalised interface, the learner receives a lesson that minimises (ideally even eliminates) cultural bias.
