I hold a Ph. D. (optics and lasers)
from Laval University (Quebec City, Canada). I was
professor at Télé-université
from 1986 to my retirement in 2016. I contributed primarily to the general
science programs. I designed not only physics
courses, but also courses on history of science,
science education, science methods and open science.
My field of research was the
application of information technology, more
specifically multimedia and simulation, to science
education. I developed a virtual physics laboratory
and several multimedia/simulation applications for
physics and chemistry education, and investigated their use
in various research projects.
I was also interested, and maintain research activities on open access, copyright, and intellectual property in higher education. I coauthored a book (in French) and regularly give talks on these subjects.
