I am currently an English teacher at Escola Secundária de Camões. I am also a researcher at the Laboratory of Distance Education and eLearning
(LEaD), Universidade Aberta, Portugal. I teach in the
eLearning Pedagogy Master’s Program. I participated as a co-author and facilitator in the online teaching training program developed at Universidade Aberta (part of the Innovation Program in Distance Education], with courses both for Universidade Aberta’s professors and tutors, and for other Portuguese universities as well.
My master’s dissertation, “From Web 2.0 to eLearning 2.0: Learning in the Network” is available in an online, rich-media version @ http://orfeu.org/weblearning20 (only Portuguese, but there’s an abstract in English).
My research interests include personal learning environments (PLEs), connectivism and networked learning. On a more broad perspective I’m interested in learning, cyberculture, edutech, literature, music, people and writing.
