Ausbildung und beruflicher Werdegang:

Dr Christian Voigt has a degree in Business Informatics and a PhD in Information Systems (2008) applied to collaborative online learning. He has extensive experience as project manager, researcher and lecturer in a number of countries (Austria, Germany, Australia and Singapore).  

His main interests include the use of technology to enable digital innovations in education, workplaces and life in general (e-participation). Christian joined the Centre for Social Innovation in 2010, where he is leading the ‘Knowledge & Technology’ Unit since 2012. Acting as a social-profit organisation, the Centre for Social Innovation conducts research on designing, implementing and assessing innovation processes and social change. Over the past years, he has been actively involved in European research projects related to educational technology, research e-infrastructures and foresight studies.

Currently, Christian is working on social innovations promoting e-inclusion (crowdsourcing geo-data) and improving participation in climate action. In the field of academia, he teaches two master’s courses (‘Didactical Design’ and ‘P2P for Social Innovation’), reviews for the Journal of Computers & Education and is regularly invited as expert on educational technologies / digital innovations.
