Started life as a geologist and geophysicist and from there, during a bust in the oil industry moved into mathematical modelling of fluidized bed combustion and other research for a few years. Eventually became a teacher in an international school and have worked in Portugal, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia and China.
I have worked for many years as an examiner for the International Baccaluareate Organisation.
Since 2003 I have been an eLearning Manager and have developed Moodle courses for Te Wananga o Aotearoa, Dulwich College Beijing and Moodle workshops for the IBO. I have also developed online workshops as a complement to traditional f2f events (blended learning).
In 2013 I completed a 3 1/2 year contract with the Southport School, Queensland, Australia as Director of eLearning with responsibility for technical management of the Moodle LMS, building staff capability, developing QA processes and working with the cross-school team on the introduction of the BYOD programme (written up by The Australian newspaper).
Currently working from my home in Karapiro Village New Zealand. Current projects include remote Moodle Admin for several organisations, Articulate Storyline and Moodle course development and working on innovations in practice for tertiary educators. Writing and blogging here.
