Mike de Kreek teaches Qualitative Research Designs in the Master Social Work and conducts research for the program Cultural and Social Dynamics, both at the Amsterdam School of Social Work and Law. During his Master Computational Linguistics he got interested in social aspects of learning processes. This resulted in a thesis about child language acquisition. Next his interest shifted towards similar aspects within digital learning and working environments in higher education. Then he concentrated on the interrelations between neighborhood residents learning computer skills, local cohesion and participation. Today he is working on a PhD-project with the working title Neighborhood Stories and Cultural Citizenship in the Digital Age. The first step in that project is to look closely at what the field of online collections of neighborhood stories is made of.
