My profile picture is me at the Winter Olympics 2010 in Vancouver. I am just coming from the Sweden hockey game.


I have been a distance instructor and course developer for over 15 years. I have learned a great deal about the art of encouraging student engagement and I am always modifying my techniques to promote students to be fully involved with their learning. As a distance education instructor and developer, I am on the leading edge of Moodle development and implementation.
