My name is Carmen Biel. Since early 2015, I am employed at the German Institute for Adult Education in Bonn working as a project manager in a research and development project. Within that project, we are dealing with the development of a platform on which adult educators can develop their (pedagogical) competencies.
From 2011 to early 2015, I have been working in the EC funded project NEXT-TELL at the Knowledge Media Research Center in Tübingen. Within that project, I also led the work package on research from March 2014 on.
I have a degree in pedagogy/adult education and my research interests can be subsumed under the terms heutagogy and self-determinded learning, assessment for learning, formative feedback-culture, learning and teaching with digital media, teachers professional development and teacher education.
Although I often tried to be a blogger, I was never able to “keep it up and running”. I would like to see this blog as part of my Personal Learning Environment, a place for reflection, inspiration and management of thoughts not only of my professional life but also of my private one.
