About Me

I hold two masters’ degrees (one in library science and one in early childhood education), a specialist degree in library science, and a Ph.D. in instructional systems technology. I have also spent a lot of time working on and involved in projects outside of my academic programs because at a certain level knowing (knowing what) isn’t enough. You have to learn by doing it (knowing how). In addition, much learning happens outside of classrooms and/or textbooks (non-formal learning). I have also developed deep expertise in the area of my interests; such as teaching, librarianship, and sports performance (knowing how to be). I recognize that learning involves all these ways of knowing and learning has been my life-long pursuit.

I am interested in:

  • Expertise
  • Human performance technology
  • Situated cognition
  • Problem-based learning
  • Gesture-based learning

I am a member of Extreme Learning research team
