BACKGROUND Before joining Swinburne in 2008, I taught Computer Programming, Information Systems, Professional Communication and Software Engineering at Monash and Western Carolina Universities. My involvement and leadership in large multimedia projects for learning computer science lead to my research investigating the relationship between motivation and cognition in multimedia learning. In recent years, together with my research students I have explored virtual environments, largely in the domain of health care. My research has infomed the development of programming subjects for non-computing majors who are visual thinkers - responsive web application development and multimedia masters capstone projects in film, animation, 3D and virtual environments.
