I decided to start this blog to write my thoughts, ideas, plans, concerns about my work (PhD research study), my hobbies (travelling, cooking, cultures and languages, daydreaming and many more) and interact with people that share similar interests.
I am Tina, my background is in Philosophy and Education with a BA from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. I also hold an MSc in Education, Technology and Society from the Graduate School of Education, Bristol University, UK and a Master of Research (Education) from the Institute of Educational Technology , Open University, UK.
Currently I’m a full-time PhD research student at the Institute of Educational Technology and my research study is focused on how people learn to teach in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
Open courses and MOOCs in particular are viewed by some as a source of innovation. This means educators in Higher Education should aim to change and adapt their professional practice for the purposes of designing and teaching open, online courses. My study looks on how educators integrate formal and informal learning to advance their practice.
I am communicative in English, French, Spanish and Greek (native speaker).
