Short biography

After graduating as a (theoretical) biologist (1978) at the Free University of Amsterdam (Vrije Universiteit, VU), Peter Sloep completed a PhD in theoretical biology at the State University of Groningen, Netherlands (1983). After post-docs at Arizona State University (USA), the University of Guelph (Canada) and the University of Groningen, he became assistent professor, later associate professor at the Science Faculty of the Open University of the Netherlands (OUNL) in 1986. There, Sloep worked for about 10 years as a developer of distance teaching courses, mainly in the areas of biology and its theoretical underpinnings, writing and editing courses on such diverse subjects as Evolutionary Biology, Mathematical Models for the Life Sciences, Understanding Scientific Reasoning, and Environmental Policy. In this period, he spent a year as a Research Fellow at the University of Bielefeld's Zentrum für Interdiziplinärforschung working on a project that sought the bridge the gap between the social and biological sciences. This resulted in a joint book called Human by Nature.

During these years his work ever more turned towards matters educational. Examples of educational innovation projects he was involved in are a project sponsored by one of the early European Framework programmes on erecting a network of European Study centres for distance learning, and the Virtual Company - a simulated company in which groups of students were to carry out authentic assignments. This prompted his move, in 1999, to the then research and development programme of the OUNL's Educational Expertise Centre (OTEC), where he became assistent professor. From 2003 to 2007 Sloep also fulfilled a part-time position of associate professor ('lector') in Educational Functions of ICT at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences, where he led a research group ('kenniskring") which investigated the use and application of ICT for learning at the secondary school level. In 2008, he became full professor in Technology Enhanced Learning at OTEC, later rebranded as CELSTEC. In a major reorganisation, CELSTEC became part of the Welten Institute as of January 1st, 2014.

From 2008 until its closure in 2012, Sloep headed one of the programme lines of the OUNL's laboratory for lifelong Learning (NeLLL). From 2008 until 2013 he was programme director of CELSTEC's now defunct R&D programme on Networked Learning. In 2013, Sloep joined and led until its closure in January 2014 a special unit set up by the OUNL - the Lerarenuniversiteit [Teachers College] - to promote and facilitate continuous professional development of primary and secondary school teachers.

From its inception in 2001, Sloep has chaired the Technical Committee Learning Technology of the Dutch Standards Organisation (NEN), from which he stepped down in April 2011, after completing a 10 year stint. As of June 2010 he became Honorary Professor, at the Caledonian Academy of Glasgow Caledonion University, in which capacity he chairs the Caledonian Academy Reference Group, after having served as a member for 3 years. He is co-founder and co-chair of the yearly Computer Science Education Research Conference series (CSERC), which started in 2011. As of September 2014 he became the chair of the Examination Board of the faculty of Management, Science and Technology (CvE-MST).

Sloep maintains a lively online presence, blogging and tweeting about his work, sharing his slides via Slideshare, having curated content on networked learning, in particular MOOCs through a once gold-labeled Scoop.it site and a Mendeley site, as well as sharing online profiles and publication lists at Mendeley and ResearchGate, Kudos and LinkedIn. As an author, he maintains the following ORC ID: orcid.org/0000-0003-4009-4980, which may be viewed at ORCID.
