Dr Richard Cox has a background in cognitive science, AI and education. He co-founded the Representation and Cognition Research Group at Sussex and has published over 30 peer-reviewed journal papers and book chapters, and over 60 refereed conference papers. His research areas include technology-enhanced learning and reasoning with external representations (e.g. diagrams). Funded by the Nuffield Foundation, Dr Cox lead the team that developed PATSy (www.patsy.ac.uk), an online multimedia interactive database of 'virtual' patient cases for students and researchers in the clinical sciences. Currently, PATSy is in regular use by more than 20 UK institutions and by several overseas institutions. Dr Cox also recently directed a major consortium project entitled 'Vicarious learning and case-based teaching of clinical reasoning skills' which was funded under the ESRC's Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP). The TRLP has now become the Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) Programme and Dr Cox serves as a member of its Advisory Board. He also coordinates a TEL Thematic Group on technology-enhanced research methods.
