|Biography || Biographie
An educator who began adult learning through open learning universities, transforming the second half of my personal an professional life as I progressed through career changes from engineering to business administration and doctoral studies in education. Regularly in my teaching practices I apply learning design processes and integrate technologies, often adapting the latest Internet app so students and I extend the classroom experience. In another teaching venue, I use the MOODLE platform for teaching online with Canadian universities. I enjoy reflecting on the evolution of the MOODLE platform, as it promises a more refined learning space for post-secondary education.
||Learming How To Learn
|Description || Description
presentation begins with my personal journey, a micro view of an individual
learner in the 1990s, attending open learning universities. I quickly move into
the educational domain of teaching university business courses and show how the
accelerated growth of technology changed the way we learn. Learning
management systems provided corporations and government with new possibilities
for training and development. In universities, the learning commons became
reality due to Internet technologies. More recently, design
thinking helps to polish curriculum in an integrated way,
combining the vast array of hard and soft technologies to achieve
assimilated learning. I end with questions about the next stage of MOODLE.
|Outcomes || Objectifs
Reflect on the implications of technology on how we learn.
Reinforce the integral roles of designers and educators.
