Dr. Dimitriadis is Professor of Telematics Engineering at the University of Valladolid, Spain. He is also coordinator of the GSIC/EMIC (Group of Intelligent and Cooperative Systems/Education,
Media, Information and Culture) research group, since 1994, an inter-disciplinary team of more than 20 researchers from the fields of Telematics, Computer Science and Pedagogy.
Besides his technical background, Prof. Dimitriadis’ main research interest is the support of Technology-enhanced learning activities and especially in Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, through both conceptual and technological tools. His main contributions concern the field of Learning Design or Scripting, through the proposal of the Collaborative Learning Flow Patterns, the Collage authoring tool and the Glue! architectural framework that covers important parts of the CSCL life cycle (design, deployment, enactment and evaluation). He has also contributed in Interaction Analysis, through a mixed evaluation approach and multiple field studies in real teaching and learning environments. Recently, he has been involved in the Classroom Orchestration field and its definition in conceptual terms, as well as in the extension of previous proposals in ubiquitous learning environments that include Web and Augmented Reality spaces.
