Stefan Sonvilla-Weiss, PhD, is Professor of communication and education technologies in Visual Culture and study programme director of ePedagogy Design - Visual Knowledge Building at Aalto University / School of Art and Design Helsinki. He coined the term Visual Knowledge Building, referring to "a visualization process of interconnected models of distributed socio-cultural encoded data representations and simulations that are structured and contextualized by a learning community." In his research he tries to find answers to how real and virtual space interactions can generate novel forms of communicative, creative and social practices in global connected communities. The last 20 years he worked as art and design teacher, media artist, graphic designer, author, multimedia-developer and university teacher. He is also serving as expert advisor and reviewer for a number of scientific and research bodies, including the European Commission and he has received several honors and scholarships. His international activities as speaker, lecturer, invited scholar and researcher brought him to many institutions around the world, for example Oxford University-Internet Institute, Seoul National University-Design Talks, National Institute of Multimedia Education Tokyo, University of the Arts London, K.U. Leuven, University Hamburg, Bilgi University Istanbul, San Francisco de Quito University.
