Reflection: I didn't get this post, but the extended interview process confirmed that educational computing was the career for me thanks to the useful dialogue with Rosemary Fraser and Hugh Burkhardt.
This final interview at the Shell Centre, University of Nottingham was for one of two Science Research Council funded research fellow positions working with the Investigations into Teaching with Microcomputer as an Aid (ITMA) project, after an earlier interview in Plymouth at the College of St Mark and St John, where ITMA was based.
ITMA at the time was one of only two UK independent, research-based projects developing school educational software and in the end, I won a post at the other, to work for the Computers in the Curriculum project at Chelsea College, London.
The two research fellows appointed at ITMA were in fact David Benzie and Jon Coupland - worthy winners and friends throughout their careers!
