brief overview of what you can expect when starting a PhD journey: changes in identity, hurdles, steps to take, ... and people. 
Yesterday I sent out a call for full scholarship degrees that were open to proposals at the Open University of the UK. As I started to communicate with friends and colleagues wondering whether they should apply for a scholars...

Great new free issue of IRRODL focusing on research papers in online learning performance and behaviour. This special issue got my interdisciplinary mind all excited (cognition, emotional intelligence, learner satisfaction.... oh yeah)

A post with link to an Iggy Pop lecture (Iggy Pop? Lecture? YES!) that follows some thinking about why I look at movies (and learn from them) even if they contain content that exceeds the 15 minute time limit. Looking at contemporary pedagogical myths of 'what you need to do' or more importantly 'should never do' when designing online learning. 
In MOOC, online and mobile learning, there is a clear statement: long recorded lectures that exceed 15 min are ineffective (the timing put on 'too much' can vary depending the research, some go to 7 min). I often think about ...

Iggy's "John Peel Lecture" is just great.

Sharing some thoughts on how getting my phd puts my identity under attack and makes me feel uncertain about who I am.

For those dreaming about getting a PhD... make it happen now: send in your proposal (it is only a bit of work, with a huge reward). The Open University of the UK offers 4 PhD scholarships in Open Technology Enhanced Learning (read MOOC, mobile learning, online learning, learning analytics...). Read the specifics, think, type ... and send! I tried it, and still loving it.

A post on finding a theory that might fit the data outcomes I have on informal MOOC learning within FutureLearn courses. And some really nice research on Motivational currents from Zoltan Dörnyei. 
A PhD journey has its ups and downs. And there is also an ongoing tension to put any findings you might have in a strong theoretical body of knowledge. Proving that your study is part of a scientific field, with strong argume...

Thoughts on the thrill of being a dedicated learner, like I would imagine David Bowie was.

Thank you for your celebration of David Bowie. As of as it seemed "strange" as a child, then I grew, lived, and learned to seek oddity - sometimes for advantage. Talent.

Story
Tagline
passionate about technology enhanced learning. Started out with eLearning, than going into mLearning and now realizing that ubiquitous learning ... will bring all differentiated technology enhanced learning back to the term learning. I currently work at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Belgium and I am starting my exploratory thesis work for a M. Ed, in Distance Education at Athabasca University in Canada. My main interests are innovative learning methods (MOOC's, socio-constructivist learning), lifelong learning, social media for learning, network for knowledge... well anything that involves learning and connecting to improve knowledge (while using technology).
Introduction
My main interest is learning through and with technologies, focusing on the learning affordances of these technologies.

If you want to see what I am working on (or thinking about) in terms of TELearning, lookie here:
