The iSchool congratulates Peter Brusilovsky, Professor, on being appointed the Editor-In-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, a journal dedicated to advancing the state of the art in technology-enhanced learning. This quarterly publication covers leading edge research on topics such as educational software applications, online learning systems, and simulation systems for education and training.

Professor Brusilovsky assumed the position in 2013, after having served as Associate Editor-in-Chief of the publication since 2008. He also serves as an Associate Editor of ACM Transactions on the Web, on the Editorial Board of the International Journal on E-Learning, and on the Editorial Board of the International Journal on Digital Libraries.

Brusilovsky is internationally-renowned for his work in the areas of adaptive Web-based systems, adaptive hypermedia, intelligent tutoring systems, human-computer interaction, and adaptive interfaces. Here at the iSchool, he has led the development of two significant research and educational efforts: the Personalized Adaptive Web Systems (PAWS) Lab and the Teaching and Learning Research Lab (TALER).

In 2012, Brusilovsky was the recipient of a Google Research Award for his project on "Personalized Social Systems for Local Communities," to support efforts to increase user participation in social systems designed for local communities. In 2005, he won the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award for his work on “Personalized Access to Open Corpus Educational Resources through Adaptive Navigation Support and Adaptive Visualization.” He was a recipient of the E.T.S. Walton Visitor Award sponsored by the Science Foundation Ireland as well as several fellowships including the James S. McDonnell Fellowship (US), the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship (Germany), and the Royal Society Ex-Quota Fellowship (UK).
