Hello and welcome to my Heriot-Watt teaching pages. If you are interested in Formal Specification then click here. If you are interested in Technology in Society then click here. If you are interested in anything else, then please read on.
Just so you know, I am currently refreshing my teaching webpages (shifting to Webby). If you spot errors, drop me an e-mail.
In Semester 2, 2013 I am teaching the Formal Specification course to second year (F28FS) and third year (F29FS) computer science students.
In Semester 2, 2013 I am teaching the Technology in Society course to first year information systems students (F27TS).
Always concerned to cultivate further intellectual development of our students, we offer a programme of lunchtime research lectures.
You can eat while watching talks about research. I haven’t been so excited since I bought a transistor radio so I could walk and listen to Radio 4.
Lectures are 14:30-15:00 Mondays and Tuesdays in the crush area. Announcements will go out by e-mail so you know what’s on the menu. Just to be clear: the same lecture is delivered twice—once on Monday, once on Tuesday—since the timetable does not have everybody free for a single slot, all at once.
The current timetable is as follows:
Seminars usually take place on Wednesdays at 15:15.
I am told that to guarantee availability of tea and coffee, it is best to book at least two weeks in advance. No, I am not making that up. So don’t last-minute me; your audience may lack caffeine and fall asleep.
If you’re interested you can look at my academic publications. I have also written some tips on writing papers and managing co-authors.
If you want to know how I write technical material to the best of my ability, then that’s where to see me trying.
You know my ten-year university reunion? I missed it, because my Alma Mater booked it for Yom Kippur. Same for my final school graduation. Be good, avoid scheduling events on Shabbat, Rosh Hasanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Chanukkah, Purim, and Passover.
