Alan Prosser (deceased)

You are here

Alan Prosser taught and researched in Physical Chemistry in UK before taking up an appointment at the University of New South Wales in 1970, thus returning to the country of his birth. Back in the 1950's Alan was experimenting with different teaching methods and subject contents so it is not surprising to learn he was a founding member of HERDSA, serving on the Executive in the mid 1970' s and 80's. 

Alan is well known as a person who championed the active role of the practicing teacher in HERDSA . He also persisted in trying to establish local branches of the society. He is a valuable mine of information about HERDSA and recently completed the task of compiling an index for HERDSA News which is available on the web site. For example for the subject article look up http://sunsite.anu.edu.au/education/herdsa/subart.html. He is about to start on the task of indexing the conference proceedings!
