Starting October 1-st I will start working full-time at the Onderwijscentrum VU of the department of Psychology and Pedagogy of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I will retreat from the daily burden of managing and advising regarding all kinds of e-learning systems of the VU such as Questionmark Perception, The Digital Exam hall, Streaming Video, Google apps, LTI-stuff. I will take a position as a trainer, teacher and advisor for VU University and external clients.
October 1-st marks the end of a long and fruitful 15 years of work of the ‘old’ ICT-Onderwijscentrum, the ‘old’ Onderwijscentrum VU and the team of Educational Advisors of the Library of the VU University. From approximately 1999 onwards, a team varying in size and composition of about 5-12 people worked hard on projects aimed at raising the quality of education at the Vrije Universiteit. A large number of projects with individual teachers and with whole departments and institutionalizing systems for large scale use were accomplished. See for example here or here.
I thank all my colleagues (not in any particular order) for many years of innovation and fine work. I hope to meet them on the VU Campus or on other occasions.

But first, tomorrow September 30, we will celebrate our ‘final day’ with some good food and a lot of drinks, some swearing and singing …
