Since the 1st of January 2019 I’m rector of the Open University (Netherlands). I’m looking forward to my new position (more to come soon).

I’m also proud to be the chair of the executive board of EdMedia/ Innovate Learning, the premier international conference in the field of Educational Technology  since 1987, spans all disciplines and levels of education attracting researchers and practitioners in the field from 70+ countries, annually organized by AACE.

Furthermore, I’m on the scientific board of Computers in Human Behaviour , on the editorial advisory board of Studies in Educational Evaluation and since 2018 editor-in-chief of the new Open Access journal Open Education Studies.
