Manager: Dr Terry Stewart
Terry has worked in developing computer-based tools and techniques
for scenario-based learning for over 26 years. This project is a
continuation of that work. He holds a PhD in computerised tools
for decision-making and training and in 2002 gained a Graduate Diploma
in Information Sciences (with distinction).
He is a Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Natural Resources at
Massey University and won a National Tertiary Teachers excellence
award in 2003.
Along with coordinating the project, Terry was responsible for
much of the training materials, workshops,development and publications.
He is particularly interested in developing sound educational methodologies
for constructing and applying problem-based scenarios.
Developer: Carey Ong
Carey has been involved in the development of instructional materials
and eLearning resources over the past 3 years. She comes from a
multimedia design background and has a strong interest in educational
and learning design. Carey's role was to liaise with domain experts
(in a number of Institutions) to develop the training scenarios,
for exemplar use in PBL-Interactive. Carey now works as an on-line
support specialist for Information Technology Services at Massey
Designer: Quentin Roper
Quentin is an illustrator/graphic designer who has worked with
e-learning systems for over nine years. He created icons and other
graphic material for PBL-Interactive scenarios and CHALLENGE FRAP.
Quentin is presently employed by IVABS, at Massey University

He re-programmed CHALLENGE FRAP for this project.
Associate Professor Richard
Richard lectures in clinical diagnosis in the Institute of Veterinary,
Animal and Biomedical Sciences (IVABS). He has been interested in
the use of computers in veterinary education since 1993 and has
led as small group involved in the development of computer-deliverable
veterinary clinical case scenarios since 1999. One of Richard's
scenarios are included in the exemplars.

North and has research interests in volcanology, Quaternary geology
and environmental geology. He assisted with the construction of
an earth-science-related scenario.
Russell is director for the Freshwater Ecosystem Management and
Modelling group within the Ecology group in the Institute of Natural
Resources. Russellís research is focused in the application of ecological
theory to stream invertebrate community ecology, and he assisted
with the construction a scenario related to environmental contamination.
Kim is based at the Wellington Campus, where she has been employed
as a Senior Lecturer since 2000. Her expertise is in physiology,
pathophysiology, and clinical pharmacology. She is assisted to develop
a preliminary diagnostic scenario for trainee nurses.
