About: I am a Belgian national trained in Communication Science at the University of Leuven. My career started in 1994 in the UK where I developed a staff development programme for Open University Lecturers in the use of ICT in distance education and researched the (early) effects of online teaching support. I then moved on to the University of Newcastle (Netskills) where I developed and delivered internet training in numerous UK HE and FE institutions. For the past decade, I have worked as an ICT and Education consultant at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Both the IT and Education landscape have ondergone many changes in that time: from the early trials with VLE's, the fall and rise of portfolio's, experiments with mobile learning and virtual environments to the serious search for long term efficient solutions to support teaching and learning (such as digital assessment).
For the past six years I have coordinated staff development initiatives aimed at raising ICT awareness and competences of academic staff via the Grassroots subsidy programme.The last few year, the focus of my work has mostly been on the implementation of digital peer assessment and digital marking using Turnitin.
I have been a member of the ALT-C conference committee since 2009.
