Previously, I was based in Canada for 9 years where my last position was Director: Knowledge Management and Information Technology at the Commonwealth of Learning (COL). I joined COL in August 2001 as Education Specialist: Knowledge Management and became Director in July 2006.
I led the establishment of the multi-national “Virtual University for the Small States of the Commonwealth” initiative, a collaboration of Ministries of Education in 32 countries. I also led COL’s work in copyright and working with Creative Commons.
I worked at Technikon SA for 12 years, during which time I lectured in Management; established non-formal education at the institution; supported the creation of institutes and the establishment of ICT centres to support learners. I conceptualised and established the African Digital Library, a service that provides full-text eBooks to residents of African countries via the Internet. My last position at Technikon South Africa was Director: Centre for Lifelong Learning.
Generally, I’m fairly open minded about copyright. If you like something on this site that I created, you are welcome to use it with attribution. Check if I have maybe linked to another site, in which case that site’s copyright license will apply.
If you would like to contact me and do not have my email address, I recommend connecting using LinkedIn and then message me that way. I am open to consulting on projects and am comfortable working online. As travel opens up again post-pandemic, I will be willing to travel once again.
