research project

As of March 2024, I have initiated a new research agenda, creating a dedicated project.

Scope of Research

This research project aims to develop a comprehensive structure of competences tailored for trainers and lecturers, focusing on the integration of digital skills and andragogic principles.

The scope encompasses the identification, analysis, and synthesis of essential competences required for designing effective learning experiences in contemporary educational settings, particularly in the context of online or remote training.

It will also address the challenges post COVID-19 pandemic, aiming to update teaching methods and tools to better cater to adult learners.

Target Audience


The primary target audience includes: trainers involved in corporate training programs, lecturers across various disciplines and professionals engaged in instructional design and educational technology.

Reaserch Objectives


Identify Essential Competences


Conduct a thorough literature review and empirical studies to identify the essential competences for designing learning experiences, with a focus on addressing challenges post COVID-19 pandemic and the shift towards online or remote training.

Develop a Competence Framework


Utilize the findings to create a structured framework outlining the key competences required by trainers and university lecturers, integrating updates to teaching methods and tools for teaching adults in online environments.

Validate the Framework


Validate the developed competence framework through expert review, focus groups, and pilot testing in real-world educational settings to ensure its applicability and effectiveness, especially in the context of remote or online training.

Create Training Materials


Develop training materials, resources, and tools aligned with the identified competences to support educators in enhancing their skills in designing engaging and effective learning experiences, particularly in online or remote settings.


Methodological Aspects


Data Collection from Practitioners


Gather data through surveys, questionnaires, and observations from practitioners actively engaged in online or remote training to understand their challenges, needs, and experiences.
