Duncan is an Associate Professor in Civil Engineering.
He is interested in learning and teaching appoaches that provide opportunities for students(particularly in the area of Engineering Mathematics and Mathematical Modelling) to engage with new materials in interactive and engaging ways. I currently manage the ESTEEM1 (Electronic Student Toolkit for Engagement in Engineering Mathematics)project that involves developing and evaluating new materials and approaches for education in Engineering Mathematics.
I currently hold a University of Leeds Education Fellowship that is allowing me to develop approaches for promoting modelling in Civil Engineering.
I am currently the Faculty of Engineering Academic Champion for Blended and Digital Learning and chair the faculty BL committee. The group aim to support the sharing of practice across the faculty (and with wider university) and have responsibility for establishing the faculity’s BL strategy.
