Stephen Downes, National Research Council Canada

Hiya everyone, I feel like I’m a bit late (by 6 months) to the party, but I’m following Christina Hendricks’s post in Daily Nous which just came out today.

I’ve been a researcher in open and distance learning and learning technology with the NRC for the last 15 years, and before that enjoyed a career that alternated between learning design and professional philosophy. My degrees are in philosophy.

You can find much more on my website at

@stephen Excited to see you here! As mentioned in the philosophy thread, I’ve read your work for many years…
