Story
Introduction

I am an Education and eLearning Consultant with, and Director of, Ethos Consultancy NZ.

I have a keen interest in all aspects of ICT enhanced learning and teaching where the focus lies on ways of scaffolding and empowering learners. In particular, I am interested in the way that creative, blended approaches to Professional Learning and Development can create trust, rapport and encourage reflective practice. As such, learning is approached from facilitation, design, evaluation and assessment as opposed to the tools and what they can offer.

I am a strong advocate of the potential of Web 2.0 to empower learners from all walks of life and cultures, especially after my experiences working for 6 years in the Middle East. In particular, I am interested how ePortfolios can be used in the Vocational Education and Traning sector (especially where Literacy and Language challenges are faced), in Recognition of Prior Learning, and in authentic, applied assessment.

I have been involved with designing and developing learning approaches and programmes for twelve years. Following research informed approaches and design, I apply a qualitative, iterative process to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions, programmes and tools, encouraging learners' voices and input from all stakeholders.
