Roland works with faculty members and doctoral assistants to improve teaching at the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), where he also teaches courses in Learning Sciences. Before moving to Switzerland, he worked in primary and secondary teacher education for two decades, including as head of teacher education at the University of Limerick, Ireland. As a researcher, his work on emotional competence in teacher education has been cited as among the most important contributions to the field. He has recently (with Cécile Hardebolle) produced a book and a MOOC (in French) for students starting scientific or engineering studies called Apprendre à étudier; guide à l'usage des étudiants en science et en ingénierie.
