Paul Rudman is a research associate working on SWIFT, which investigates the use of artificial environments, such as Second Life, to support laboratory-based learning of genetics at undergraduate level. Paul has previously worked on the Equator project at the University of Glasgow investigating interactions between a physical city and its digital representation, as consultant on the evaluation of MyArtSpace, a mobile learning service to support school museum visits, and most recently at Oxford Brookes University on the evaluation of the EU-funded AtGentive project, which investigated the role of artificial characters in guiding children's attention in an online learning environment.
