About: I am a researcher at the National Research Council of Canada’s ITT Learning and Collaborative Technologies Group and my research currently focuses on Personal Learning Environments. Before I moved to Canada I was an Assistant Professor in Adult Continuing Education in the UK after a career as teacher and head-teacher in Dutch elementary education. My research interests are personalized learning, self-directed learning on open online networks.
