About: Lecturer and Learning Technology researcher at Open Universiteit (NL).
Originally a language and literature graduate at K.U.Leuven, I have worked as researcher in a number of technology related domains: speech technology, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, multimedia and distance learning for travelling children, technology supported organisational innovation for production workers, management information systems, teacher training and professionalisation, and technology enhanced learning (since 2003).
I got my (industrial) PhD at the University of Southern Denmark, looking at psycho-social aspects of technological innovation in organisations.
Currently I am in the Learning Networks research programme at the Centre for Learning Sciences and Technology (CELSTEC) of the Open University in The Netherlands, studying social learning for professionals. I teach an e-learning course at Master's level, and am project leader for a number of internal OUNL projects related to our VLE.

Lesley Gourlay:

Hi Stephen,

Would be great to meet you while at the conference. Have just been chatting to Frances etc, and have arranged to met Rhona at the drinks reception. Would you like to meet then too? Could always sit together at dinner too if you like,

Best Wishes
