PROFESSIONAL/WORK


EDUCATION

I obtained an M.A. (ord) majoring in French and German from Glasgow University a 'wee' while ago. (See definition of 'wee' in my home page). The following year I received a Teaching Certificate at the High School level from Jordanhill Teachers' College in Glasgow.
I received my Masters in Education at Niagara University (eventually!) in Summer '97.
Each summer for the last 10 years, I have attended the National Computer Educators' Institute (NCEI) at the University of Central Oklahoma. This institute is jointly sponsored by UCO and McGraw-Hill publishers, and is attended by computer educators from all over North America. It offers 2-week post-graduate courses in leading-edge computer topics, as well as the opportunity to network with other computer professionals.

WORK EXPERIENCE

I worked for 9 years in the Information Technology field in Toronto before entering the teaching profession. I spent almost 2 years in the Computer Studies department at Humber College, before coming to Niagara College in 1979.
