Peter B. Sloep

Peter Sloep is the Programme Director of the CELSTEC Research and Technology Development Programme. This programme employs about 30 educational technologists and software developers. Until 2007 Dr. Sloep also was a professor in Educational Functions of ICT at the Fontys University of Professional Education's School of Education. He is one of the founders of the Virtual Company - a simulated company in which heterogeneous virtual teams of students carry out authentic project assignments while developing their individual competencies. His current research interest include distributed learning systems, particularly the technical affordances including specifications for interoperability - and the social aspects of learning networks that are conducive to the emergence of a viable learning and working environment for lifelong learning. Dr. Sloep was part of the team that brought the OUNL's proprietary EML specification to the attention of the CEN/ISSS workshop on learning technologies and Educause's IMS, and subsequently successfully managed for it to become the IMS Learning Design specification.
