  12. 12. Teaching I have developed and taught modules in • Artificial Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms (BSc degree year and masters course). This module is being used at Rice University, USA and substantial sections are being used at other universities throughout the world. • Information Theory and Artificial Neural Networks (BSC honours year) • Object Oriented Programming (Masters course) • Networking, Principles and Strategy • Artificial Intelligence Methods • Computer Game AI. • and several modules on programming languages. I was the University of Paisley’s contact with the Clyde Virtual University. I was External Examiner for Aston University’s Combined Honours Mathematics degree (2000 – 2003), and participated in a review of the same course in 2004. Administration I initiated, organised and maintained secondary school liaison days from 1996-2000. I was Project Administrator for MSc, Advanced Computer Systems Development, 1996-1997 and Course Leader, 1997-2000. I have served on the University’s Research Degrees Committee from 1998 – date and various Research Committees in Schools and Faculties. I organised Departmental Seminars and In-service days from 1997-2001.
