OK my name is Andrew Scott. I am a learning and development manager with a global pharmaceutical company based in Sydney Australia. My job entails a fairly broad range of learning environments. I train product knowledge for sales people and marketers as well as selling skills for sales people and their managers and I am starting to get involved in management and leadership training across the company. Another area of interest is broader professional development for all employees and developing a framework of offerings which they can access at different stages of their careers.
My background in Adult education is largely sports coaching but I also spent a few years in the Vocational Education and Training sphere delivery licensing courses for people entering or progressing through the security industry. I have coached around the World in Australia, the United Kingdom, Japan and the United States. I look forward to sharing ideas and learning from people with more experience in web based applications.
I am Bob Esty, and I teach Humanities, a mixture of English and US History, at the Barrie School, a small private school in Maryland near Washington DC. I've been teaching for nearly 14 years, but I'm a relative newbie to the Web 2.0 world. I am looking forward to learning more about 2.0 applications. I am also interested in neat teaching tips and sites for my subject areas. Thanks!
Hi all! My name is Shanda FitzHenry and I am currently a student on the path to my teaching degree. I am in the middle of a long and hard research project in hopes of gathering any and all information I can get my hands on about "digital classrooms". Not only will this project determine my grade and ultimately my future but I chose the topic for my own personal gain. I wish to know all I can to determine my own teaching style once in my own classroom. Any good sources I should check out? All help is greatly appreciated!!!
