Communicating and Teaching Computing: the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (Undergraduate)

Students will typically begin by observing the teacher's handling of the class and progress from this classroom assistant stage through small teaching tasks to at least one opportunity to undertake whole class teaching, possibly for a short part of a lesson. They will represent and promote computing and related subjects more generally as a potential university choice. Students will undertake and evaluate a special project on the basis of discussion with the teacher. This may involve a specific in-class teaching problem or an extra-curricular project such as a lunchtime club or special coaching periods for higher ability pupils. The student will keep a journal of their own progress in working in the classroom environment, and they will be asked to submit a reflective written report on the special project and other relevant aspects of the school placement experience. This format is standard within the Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (

Introduction to Multimedia (Undergraduate)

This module unit focuses on the basics concepts on multimedia systems. It introduces the student to the building elements of multimedia computing and their relation with human perception. By the end of the module students should be able to: * understand the difference between analogue and digital * cover the underlying theory of quantisation and sampling for audio, images and video * learn the high-level functioning of the human year and human eye * understand the different colour space representations * understand how to characterise different media through their features * study practical examples of multimedia systems


Research Interests:

Binocular vision, multi-view 3D reconstruction and depth-cameras. Geometric and statistical models of human perception.
