Richard Treves mug 150x150I am an Educational Technologist and Learning Designer from a ‘Geo’ background (maps, geography and geology e.g. Google Earth Tours) currently working at the Open University. I am especially enthusiastic about screencasts for non-specialists (tutors and students), flipped learning and distance learning.

Educated as an earth scientist I worked as a water Geologist in sub saharan Africa. On returning to the UK, I have been involved in TEL (Technology Enhanced Learning) and teaching at Universities since 1996 including Technology Tutor manager at the Open University 2000-2003, USGS Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory and a Learning Developer at School of Geography at Southampton University UK 2004-15.  I keep a blog about how use of Google Earth in education.

In the rest of my life I’m a father, mountain bike rider and runner.
