Areas of Responsibilities

I am specialising in educational technologies specifically related to language acquisition and teaching in higher education. More info on my activities and projects.

My special interests revolve around experiential and socio-constructivist learning theories and applying the use of Web 2.0 tools and 3D virtual environments to foster situated language learning. I strongly advocate Communities of Practice (CoPs),  OPen Access and MOOCs as spaces for professional training as well as personal development.
