University Research & Writing

I read Internet Computing BSc (Hons) at the University of Hull, Scarborough Campus between 2005 and 2008, graduating First Class with Honours.

During my course, I completed several pieces of technical writing, including my final year project (dissertation) on web storytelling. Overall, my favoured modules included managing a team of fellow students to deliver projects to multiple clients (personas played by our tutors), web authoring modules (HTML, CSS, web standards, accessibility, implementation) and research (proposing hypotheses, conducting tests, drawing conclusions, critical thinking, formal paper writing).

Here are some examples of my writing during my degree:
