I am Professor for Blended Learning and the Director of the Blended Learning Center at the HTW Chur and an expert for smart knowledge and educational technologies. For many years I studies the underpinnings of integrating different technologies into coherent learning and working environments for richer insights and learning experiences. My studies lead me often to technologies that are not very well established and understood, so I develop educational and organisational strategies as well as apps and tools for handling these technologies within the complexities that are common to many organisations.
I am an alumni of the Dutch Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS), and a (former senior) member of the IAmLearn and the ACM. Presently, I am chairing the Swiss Eduhub SIG Mobile Learning and I am a member of many programme committees of international conference, such as mLearn, EC-TEL, ICCE, IEEE ICALT, or IEEE EDUCON. I contributed to international Ph.D. trainings on Technology-enhanced Learning by organising the TENCompetence Winterschools (2007-2009) and the JTEL Winter Schools (2010-2011) as well as lecturing at JTEL Summer-School (2014).
I worked as a Researcher at the ETH Zürich, Switzerland (2012-2015), the Open University in The Netherlands (2006-2012), the University of Innsbruck, Austria (2005-2006), and the Austrian Research Centers (2003-2005).
