Dr Stamatina Anastopoulou
Dr Stamatina Anastopoulou is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Evaluation of Technology-enhanced Learning at Scale, at the Open University, UK. She has been involved in researching personalised learning across contexts, in Greece and the UK, and has recently achieved a prestigious Marie Sklodowska-Curie Award to research personalised learning inquiries in museums.
Her current work focuses on evaluating strategic projects of the Open University and sits within the Professional & Digital Learning programme. She is interested in the impact of innovative organisational practices in student success and in staff development. I study the opportunities and challenges that students and members of the OU staff face and turn their input into recommendations for organisational change.
The project with Refugee Action focuses on evaluating the Frontline Immigration Advice Project (FIAP) learning activities to their trainees. Using a mixed-method evaluation approach, it studies the online provision of professional development and it also assesses the impact of FIAP on frontline organisations and individuals with the aim to provide recommendations to Refugee Action.
She has used a variety of methods for qualitative and quantitative analysis methods. Her publications and research interests lie in the iterative design of learning experiences with technologies, grounded approaches for evaluation of learning experiences, and innovative methods for requirements elicitation from authentic settings. She has published more than 40 articles in journals, books and conference proceedings.
Stamatina received her PhD in Electrical Engineering (Educational Technology ) and an MSc in Cognitive Science, both from the University of Birmingham and holds a degree in Industrial Management (BA Hons) from University of Piraeus, Greece. She has been a Lead Researcher in several projects funded by the EU (e.g. Connect , and Hands-On & Brains-On ), EPSRC-UK ( Personal Inquiry ) as well as the NSRF (University of the Aegean Summer Schools, Greek Education Reform), directing work-package research teams, where learners’ choice and evaluation had always a strong role and innovative character and informed public and university policy.
She has been the expert evaluator for Minerva, a strategic innovation project of the Open University, UK aiming to reform the university’s module production process using agile principles, innovative pedagogies and technologies. She was also heavily involved in the evaluation of the Greek Educational Reform by the Greek Institute of Educational Policy (the sole consultant of Ministry of Education in Greece). In between she has designed, coordinated and evaluated the implementation for Summer Schools for the University of the Aegean, Greece, a newly developed strategic structure aiming to highlight and promote the scientific work and research of the University staff in Europe and around the globe.
