    Vision Statement

    I have a particular focus on the pedagogy of teaching, within Built Environment disciplines, that focuses on group work and virtual process. I have been involved in projects that look at the effective use of peer and self assessment in teamwork, the use of virtual teams to deliver group projects and the use of virtual reality simulation training for construction students. In addition, I have been and am still involved in European projects that look at improving the English language skills of European construction workers.
