Andrew has always been intrigued by how people learn, applying a range of traditional and innovative pedagogies in a teaching career that ranged from preschool to adult professional learning. His current focus is how outdoor environments appear to capture and hold learners attention more readily than indoor settings. In particular he is investigating the role that imagery with fractal density prevalent in nature may play in attention restoration.
