PROFESSIONProgram director and instructor

I am the program director of the Master of Distance Education and E-Learning (MDE) graduate program at Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany, as well as an associate professor within the MDE at the University of Maryland University College, USA, where I was the recipient of the university’s 2016 Stanley J. Drazek Teaching Excellence Award. I am also a vice-president and executive committee member of the European Distance Education and E-Learning Network (EDEN) and an EDEN Fellow. My research interests are in the areas of lifelong and self-determined learning (heutagogy) and the pedagogical application of technology to create learner-centered educational environments. Before rejoining academia in 2006, I worked within international corporate environments in the software industry, designing, leading, and implementing enterprise-wide knowledge management and training solutions.
