“Recent years have seen the rapid development of digital tools which can be used to record, present and document the built heritage,” he said.
“While a great deal of research has concentrated on the improvement of devices and software, work at RGU has tended towards using the tools to explore methods of community engagement.
“This can be regarded as an important pathway to demonstrating and encouraging the use of research findings in practice, and has formed a key strand of explorations across the past 10 years.”
The lecture will be held in the Sir Ian Wood Building on Wednesday, February 20.
