Who I am & What I do
My research interests lies in the design and the evaluation of Technology-Enhanced
Learning (TEL) environments.
Over the last couple of years, I have conducted several research projects in various areas: Participatory Design, 3D Dynamic Geometry, (Open) Learner Modelling, Multi-Representations Learning Environments, Life-long Learning, and Auditory Perceptual Learning.
I have been working in inter-disciplinary contexts, tackling some of the key questions and problems of learning technologies from a predominantly computer science perspective.
Two threads characterise my research agenda: 1) the role, usage and impact of external representations in learning and, 2) transforming learning experiences into transferable knowledge.
