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).

Just read and highlighted some interesting views listed in a recently published #EU policy report on the impact of #AI on #learning, teaching and #education. Today is my first official day at @InnoEnergy after a long period of treatment and revalidation. Starting anew does give some anxiety, on the other hand, I realize that the informal learning I did in the past few months, actually lead to this new function. In the next two years, I will be part of a team working on matching a learning gap of sustainable engineers to specific courses or workshops that will allow them to become futureproof. This means a multidisciplinary team encorporating HR, AI (specifically Natural Language Programming), learning theory, learning data, inclusion and ... sustainable energy. Nice!

Sharing a few ideas on age and change, while heading towards a new job, a new project, and in search of solace for the fact that I am starting anew while being slightly older. #age   #change   #donQuixote   #EleanorRoosevelt

Three calls for papers (CfP) for three wonderful conferences for those interested in AI, MOOCs and mobile learning. Grab your keyboard, and submit your proposal, we might meet at the venue!

Great session with lots of engaging participants at OEB2018 on the subject of AI, machine learning, learning and philosophers. I took notes during this session, trying to pin down all the ideas the participants had (an AI secretary would have been nice :D It was really inspiring! #AI #machinelearning #philosophy #oebconference

First slides to accompany my talk on using philosophers in our presentations on online learning, or AI, or machine learning... and why we do that (no answer, just questions)

This was a wonderful AI session, with knowledgeable speakers, which is always a pleasure. Some of the speakers showed their AI solutions, and described their process; others focused on the opportunities and challenges. Some great links as well. #AI #machinelearning, #learninganalytics, #AIED, #oebconfernce

great workshop with many OEB participants at the pre-conference event in Berlin. Online Educa Berlin is a great way to get immersed in what is currently on the agenda of many learning technologists. #oebconference #onlinelearning

Adding another short commentary (I should find a new type of title that covers this merging of old with new based on emerging ideas. #Aristotle   #echochambers   #impressions   #philosophy   #learning
