Dr Darrel Manuel

Lecturer

I am currently a lecturer in technology-enhanced learning at Kingston University. I have worked at Kingston University since 2006, and previous to my current role I was an academic e-developer..

I am heavily involved in staff development relating to learning technologies and have worked in the areas of courseware development and learning technologies since 1999 at a number of British universities. Prior projects include the TLTP-3 funded EDEC project at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and Oxford Brookes University and the European Union 5th Framework funded RESCUE project at the University of Nottingham.

At Kingston University, I was initially focussed on developing resources. I have helped various members of staff in the University's faculties develop online resources. These include:

  • designing and developing modules for deployment within the Blackboard VLE and Kingston's Wordpress installation;
  • photography;
  • creating web pages; and
  • Flash-based interactive resources, videos and podcasts.

I have delivered staff development in various areas, including pedagogic use of Blackboard, Turnitin, Blackboard Collaborate and Prezi. This also involved helping to support and maintain the Blackboard VLE.

Qualifications and memberships

  • University of Exeter: PhD (Thesis: General and Automatic Visualizations)
  • University of Exeter: MSc New Generation Computing (Awarded with Distinction)

Research interests

My principal research area is in the area of learning technology, having worked on projects in this area since 1999 at a number of British universities. I have been working at Kingston University since 2006, initially focused on developing resources before expanding into staff development and research into learning technologies.

My research interests were initially more heavily based in human-computer interaction, in the area of program visualisation, with my PhD thesis and MSc dissertation based in the area of program visualisation. This involved the modelling of program data as visual object hierarchies and used techniques that could be applied to any form of data visualisation.
