Alan Newell

History of Computing at the University of Dundee | Computing at University of Dundee [cached]

In 1980 Professor Newell founded the University of Dundee's computing research group. His interdisciplinary training in engineering and psychology and his international reputation in developing computer systems to help people with disabilities formed a major strand of this group.

Alan Newell text
Our students are immersed in the ethos of this environment. They are given a firm grounding in Computer Science together with an understanding of the needs of users, particularly those with special needs. They thus graduate with knowledge not only of computing, but also of how it can be used to improve the quality of the lives of all citizens.
The history of the group has been published by Alan Newell in his book "Design and the Digital Divide: Insights from 40 years in Computer Support for Older and Disabled People".
