Annette Crisp, Senior Lecturer in Policing, Psychology and Criminal Justice
Annette explored both the possibilities and problems involved in trying to bring together aspiration and actuality in developing new tools for teaching in an area where technology has not formerly been associated with success!
The use of avatar animation software with full lip synch capabilities was explored as a way of engaging students in crime scenarios and background theory. The session led to the formation of a constructed learning group to develop research under the aegis of the IOCT.
