Lectures & Seminars

Teaching to students and within academic and education institutions is one of the most enjoyable and exciting parts of my work. I enjoy teaching, sharing experiences and skills and can establish positive and constructive relations with students and participants.

The focus of my teaching activities range from technical and web design related topic, with special attention to e-inclusion, disabled & elderly users, communication, regulations and an understanding of the Internet Society and Digital Divide.

My focus them moved to methodological approaches, which have been part of my core research in the past few years: an understanding of methodologies is the key of any research and professional activity. From 2009 to 2012 I regularly held presentations about my research at London School of Economics (UK) focusing especially on the methodological approach, data collection and data analysis processes.

Beside teaching for short seminars, I held long courses and managed and designed the syllabus and curricula of Master courses (600 hours trainings).
