EduNorth is a collection of Learning Resources.  It  is my Professional Database.  It is updated on an irregular basis. 

 

My main interests presently are:  Problem Solving, Team Building, Organizational Learning, Workplace Training, Learning Technologies, Instructional Design, Occupational Health & Safety, Training Trainers, and Career & Personal Development Counselling.  

 

Examples of projects that I’d really like to be involved with include:

  • Generic Train-the-Trainer Course for Industry, Colleges, and Organizations
  • Plain Language Standards Implementation for Governmental Organizations
  • Re-Design & Develop the Saskatchewan WCB Occupational Health Committee Training Courses (Level 1 & Level 2)
  • Bicycles as Trades Skills Training Projects in K-12 Schools.

 

I am very interested in learning how to facilitate learning efficiently.  I believe that the average person can learn to do almost any task competently and efficiently, and that their learning process can be accelerated through competent training, instruction, and guidance.  It is my contention that any person of overall average skills and abilities can become a competent trainer, instructor and guide in relatively little time – with an attitude that pursues excellence in this effort. 

 

I see the Smartphone as a piece of communications and learning technology that is going to lead to a wholesale revolution in the approach to providing learning facilitation services across the board.  I expect to see a significant shift away from attendance at fixed locations at set hours throughout the day, month, and year, for all age groups.  At the same time, I expect to see Smartphone technology adopted (and perhaps mandated) in the workplace to maximize production efficiencies and to minimize harms to workers, the public, and the environment.

 

I maintain EduNorth as my learning resources database.
