Portfolio

On this page I will attempt to link to work that I helped to create, either in most cases as part of a team, or solely by my own efforts. I have attempted some categorization and may change my mind on that later.

Presentations

My first presentations date back to 2014, when I did some internal presentations, as well as a small paper and a teacher handbook, around the first results of MOOCs. I also attended a Coursera Conference panel on how to deal with negativity in courses in London in that year. I presented at several annual Coursera Conferences after that until that went out of style (and their conferences became solely marketing oriented). I have also presented at several communication seminars. Those have lost most of their usefulness, but if you are curious contact me and I can provide them. Below some of my more recent presentations and productions for which there is a paper trail or media recording.

Video & Podcasting

These productions were all made in collaboration with the mediateam of Centre for Innovation and I credit them with the quality of the production.

  • A decade of making MOOCs: relaunch of the Terrorism MOOC – a livestreamed talkshow, in which I took the role of producer, with my fantastic media team covering the tech bits and the director’s role. About making MOOCs for the last decade, and how it connects to Leiden University (digital) strategy. (April 2022)
  • Experiencing Education in 2020 – a documentary that I co-directed on how Leiden University survived Education in 2020, with some focus on the support staff. (Jan 2021)
  • A Very Mindful Podcast: Green Spaces.
  • Five Stage Model – part of the training of moderator volunteers, explaining Gilly Salmons’ 5 stage module, and the role of the moderator.
  • Trolls & Haters – part of the training of moderator volunteers, explaining the fenomena.
  • Why is Emoderation Important? – part of the training of moderator volunteers, the basic reasons for moderation
  • The Mindful Garden – what is possible to increase biodiversity at Leiden University? The green musketeers of Centre for Innovation made this garden possible.
  • Online Study Tips – a summary of what was once the academic toolkit, in use by the Leiden MOOCs. (Script and concept by myself, voice over the wonderful Cameron Hope).

Games & Communities

Some of the games and game resource sites I worked on are no longer live, so I provide no link to them, but you can contact me if they are of interest to you. I do not list the games that I did not help found.

  • We are busy developing a forcasting game using roleplaying techniques. Our first experiment was on the topic of the metaverse in education. Not yet finished enough to share big scale, but promising methodology. (winter 2022)
