Mr Graham Alsop

Associate Professor

About

I am Graham and have an interest in Technology Enhanced Learning and have been seconded full-time for 2016-17 (and half-time for 2017-18) to aid the development of Canvas at Kingston University. My substantive role in the School of Computer Science and Mathematics has spanned several years, and has included being Course Director and Module Leader for a number of degrees and modules. In terms of Faculty roles I aided the development of StudySpace at Kingston in the past and looked after the Student Representative System within the Faculty. I have undertaken a large variety of different roles over a number of years.

My research interests focus on learning technology and the methods used to study its use.
