Research interest: The effect a virtual community has on quality of learning in the environmental context of water security.

I believe in life-long learning. I’m a teacher and would like each and every one of my students to have the skill to be life-long learners. Without the formal structure formal education gives you many people cease to learn or even believe that they are learning. If I research the effects of (global virtual) community on quality of learning, I might be able to improve the skill acquisition required by my students the continue learning and even start solving complicated problems in collaboration with others.    

Keywords: Environmental Education, Virtual community of Practice, Water Security, Quality learning.
