Personal Description:

I hold a BSc in Education, a Graduate Certificate in Teaching and Supporting Learning in Higher Education, a BSc in Economics, an MBA, an MSc in Computer Science and I am finishing a Ph.D. in artificial intelligence and educational technologies at Birkbeck. I currently work for one of the biggest consulting companies in the world doing R&D and developing prototypes. I have worked as a visiting lecturer for City University London for seven years and as a lecturer/TA for Birkbeck for 5 years. I have been an active researcher in educational technologies for more a decade and I have worked as a reseracher in various institutions both in Greece and in the UK (Birkbeck and UCL Knowledge Lab). I have been working since 1991 both in the industry and in the academia holding various posts. I also have been working as a freelance developer since 1996. I was a CTO for a multi-national group of industrial companies for several years. I contributed as a scientific associate in large scale EU projects at the University of Thessaly in Greece. I have teaching experience in secondary, tertiary and vocational education for many years mainly teaching programming languages and related technologies (Assembly, C, C++, Pascal, Java, VB6, Excel VBA, Access VBA, Project VBA, VBScript, JavaScript, Windows Shell Script, SQL, RDS, ASP, ADO, XML, RDF, ESRI ArcObjects and others).

Training Experience:

Public Secondary School ICT Teacher (8 years), Private Tuition Centre ICT Teacher (2 years), University Teaching Assistant (4 years), University Lecturer (8 years), Vocational Training Lecturer (6 years)

Training Approach:

There are no special or talented people that deserve to be educated. All the people have potential and they deserve to enjoy the benefits of education. The question is how to motivate them to do things and how to exploit their potential. I believe that the trick is to let them discover these things themselves and coordinate the process from the background. If you provide proper support and correct directions the students will find their way and they will have the satisfaction that they did it themselves. That will empower their motivation to go forward and try more. IT is not difficult and does not need a very strong mathematical background. It is possible for someone without any previous knowledge to become a very competent programmer in a couple of years. That is not just my personal opinion. It has been proved many times in the past.
