I am Media Educator and have been active on different fields of action-oriented media education since the 90ies. I have a cross-over-approach to media education, having been working with different types of media (video, audio, web) within many different educational frameworks (school, youth work, kindergarten, adult education, community media). Presently, I’m managing wienXtra-medienzentrum, one of the biggest practice-orienteted media education institutions in Austria. The focus of my work is on developing methodology for action-orientated media education and on designing and conducting media education courses for educators.
