The Team

The co-curricular activities team has planned the app, developed it in conjunction with a student focus group and the Student Experience Team in OBIS, and piloted it with students.

Alison Honour
Associate Dean, Student Experience

Alison Honour studied BA (Hons) Sculpture at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and MA Site-Specific Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art. She has taught and held leadership and management roles in Schools of Art & design since 1991 before joining Oxford Brookes University in 2006. Her work originated in sculpture, performance and site specific installations and has more recently involved collaborative research projects with technology, science and psychology including the creation of 'believable' robots and the use of eye tracking technology to explore 'looking' in the teaching of art and design. Other themes such as 'attachment' are also explored in her sculptural work.

Bob Champion

Bob Champion's teaching and research interests include business applications of computing technologies; conceptual modelling of business processes and computer systems; analysis and design of effective systems; database technology; Business Intelligence and analytics software development; modelling mechanisms and formalisms in requirements engineering; and application of gamification techniques to undergraduate teaching.

Lindsay Williams
