Wakefield Carter MA

Psychology Demonstrator


I previously studied at the Universities of Cambridge, Poitiers and Oxford before joining Oxford Brookes as a research assistant in April, 1995. In September 1997, I became a Psychology Demonstrator supporting experimental design and analysis and use of computers in Psychology. I maintain the Psychology Internal web pages and have helped develop the department's use of Resource Based Learning. In 2009 I was joint winner of the Higher Education Academy Psychology Network technician award.
