Expertise in technology enhanced teaching and learning
Affiliation: Faculty of Chemistry, Vienna University of Technology, Austria
Although the times of active teaching and supervision in the fields of organic chemistry are over, I'm still heavily engaged in the topic of learning and teaching, mainly with the respect of computer assisted methods. At the Vienna University of Technology (Austria) I developed a large-scale online tool, which helps students to get information needed for their laboratory courses. This includes gathering working procedures and submission of results of experiments, and was extended in the last time with tools for teachers and technicians (automatic generation of filecards for students, management of borrowed or broken labware items, statistical interpretations of results).
In addition I'm responsible for the EChemTest-Testing centre in Vienna with more than 500 tests per year.
Besides the university job I'm running a company on several kinds of IT-services (standard providing techniques like WEB/Mail/Database-Implementations and -Hosting, especially for Chemists) as well as conference organization (from online submission®istration to the printed conference proceedings).
And I am an active member of the European Chemistry Thematic Network working groups.
