Example Major Research Project

I was the principal investigator on the Rural Advanced Community of Learners (RACOL) project, one of the first applications launched on the Alberta SuperNet. RACOL developed a model of teaching and learning that exploits the potential of broadband networks and advanced digital technologies. Rather that falling into either of the synchronous or asynchronous distance learning camps, RACOL exploits the best of each. Capabilities such as broadcast quality digital video, streaming media, electronic whiteboards and educational objects aid in the facilitation of effective learning and address the needs of students in rural and remote school districts.

Personal Interests:

I like to travel and to try to understand other cultures. I have been very fortunate to be able to combine this love of travel with my professional interest in using technology to improve educational systems in developing countries.
