After more than a year and a half at Exeter University, I moved back to Austria to continue teaching at K.F.University, Graz. There are some new challenges ahead, as well as some courses I used to teach before I left. Looking forward to seeing you onsite and online.

We want you to learn effectively and enjoy the resources on the site. I have brought my experience of educational design to the task of producing resources and course guides. The care and attention we give to their preparation, I believe, means that they will be of real assistance to you.
