Career Goals

The concept of life-long learning became personal in 1998. After thirteen years of running my own printing and publishing business, and another nine years leading a course at the University of the Nations, part of Youth With A Mission (YWAM), I was able to return to university as a student. It was to gain two masters degrees: one in interactive multimedia and the other in education (majoring in online). For most of my working life, I have been a pioneer, innovative, an individual who can generate good ideas and someone who can transfer vision to others.  In 2003 when I applied for my current job, my career objectives were:

“To research and pioneer effective virtual learning communities and help them meet their stated objectives. I would like to help people develop their potential and fulfil their destiny through deep, life-long learning. I intend to stay on the edge of the revolution in education and information management. I will develop and apply the latest learning design strategies to build creative curriculum, which when delivered using the latest web based and interactive multimedia technologies, will provide life changing educational opportunities for those participating.”
