Dr Catherine Flick

I am a technology ethicist who teaches in the School of Computer Science and Informatics in the Faculty of Technology. My research interests are many and varied but have involved: responsible research and innovation, ethics of video games, online child protection, ethics of AI and machine learning, and professional ethics. I teach Business Computing students how to do research and think about ethical and social impact of technology, make them do peer marking,  videos, and unessays, and usually it turns out pretty well. I’m all about constructive alignment, and I’m also a firm believer in the power of reflection for critical thinking approaches. While I don’t do a lot of teaching due to research commitments I try to make it good stuff, and where possible embed my research into the activities.

I also supervise PhD students and final year project students.

Areas of interest in education: peer marking, creative forms of assessment, reflection, critical thinking, embedding research in teaching, ethics
