Honorary Academic

Research | Current

  • Educational resource development
    Developing teaching materials that provide learning opportunities or alternative practical experiences to regular experimental exercises for students. These materials test comprehension and the analysis of data that cannot readily be obtained in standard introductory laboratory settings. Current work also includes the development of a special topic suitable for inclusion in the senior secondary school Physics syllabus on thoroughbred horseracing.
  • Statistical surveys and analyses
    Undertake surveys of Physics enrolments in Australasian universities to provide statistics, analyse trends and develop reports suitable for manpower considerations bearing on national science and technology directions in Australia and New Zealand.
