Welcome to my web site.

I taught for many years at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh and I retired in 2013. I have a general interest in teaching mammalian physiology and biochemistry. I have taught in the areas of Energy, Nutrition and Metabolism, Renal physiology, Integrative physiology and Embryology.

I am interested in the nature of explanation in teaching and how to achieve good explanations. I have used computer-aided learning in order to enhance explanations and these teaching items are available from this web site.

In the sections of this website, you can find audio-powerpoint lectures and computer aided learning materials. You are welcome to use them and I would be pleased if they were helpful to you.
