I’m a German teacher and teacher trainer for the Greek Ministry of Education. In this role I teach German as a foreign language in primary, secondary and post-secondary education in public schools in Greece. Furthermore, I’m involved in teacher training and development courses, working as an E-Learning Course Designer. In 2012 I was awarded the “Excellence and Innovation Award” by the Ministry for my being part of a team, which trained more than 1500 primary and high school teachers online from 2010 to 2012.
Before getting a permanent teaching job, I had worked for Platon Schools in Katerini, Greece. I taught German, but I was very lucky to get involved in European Projects and work with Canonical’s Edubuntu team, Universal Learning Systems and Intercollege.
I love my work as a German teacher, but I’m really passionate about e-learning. My favorite part of the course development process is working with subject matter experts to develop effective content and activities. I consider myself a people-person and prefer to work in a team rather than solo.
My specialties: Instructional design, developing online courses, facilitating online courses, developing high-quality multimedia content for online learning, adult Learning, teacher development, teaching German as a second or foreign language, analyzing language learning needs.
