I love people. I love teaching. I love books. I love to write.
So, I'm always having a good time loving something!
Currently, I am an Adjunct Professor of Critical Thinking for Antioch University Midwest, teaching a course entitled "Critical Thoughts" that I designed over the past year. Prospective students can get a feel for my online teaching style at the following YouTube link:
I am a founding partner, along with David Amerland, Robert E. del Sol, Shaker Cherukuri and Leland LeCuyer, of SynaptIQ+
, The think tank for social era knowledge.
I am the Editor-in-Chief of The Journal for Social Era Knowledge which is going into its second Volume, second Issue (May 2014). This is a peer-reviewed journal, global in scope, but written in English, published online once a year by SynaptIQ+. Its purpose is to stimulate academic research and encourage business and academic exchanges for the advancement of social era understanding.
It also publishes short fiction, theoretical essays, best-practices in social era expertise, poetry and empirical papers for those interested in the compelling questions engendered by the introduction of the social era. The Journal encourages submissions by new writers (see submission requirements) and welcomes high-quality content on the practical, philosophical, scientific and human interest insights on the following subjects:
- social media
- social marketing
- customer relation management (Social CRM)
- social business
- electronic commerce
- social shopping
- social advertising
- social media optimization®
- reinvented search engine optimization (SEO) including Semantic Search (David Amerland, one of the founders of SynaptIQ+, wrote the book on Semantic Search).
- algorithmic analysis of any or all aspects of the Internet
- online learning and teaching

- online identity and reputation

Besides academic and fiction writing, one of my life's goals is to make online learning better than land-based. Why? Because online learning is coming! Probably faster than we can now imagine. I have had some success in making online learning better than land-based, so? I think we can succeed if we work hard at it. I am an experienced (over ten years) course designer and am happy to help those who are starting out.
Information is not knowledge: engaging learners with information so that they become enthusiastic about knowledge is at the heart of great course design!
My strongest technical expertise is in Teaching, Research, Writing, Editing, Publishing and Instructional Design.
