I’m a retired professor. At Sheridan College I taught writing (for a variety of purposes), the structure of poetry, reading (using Thomson’s Understanding Teenagers’ Reading), computer & web use for business, and the structure of story in popular movies (using Seger’s Making a Good Script Great). At the University of Toronto in Mississauga, I taught public speaking and presenting (rhetoric using Heinrichs’ Thank You For Arguing), and podcasting, using class wikis and other web resources.
Below you can read some of my latest thoughts on learning, the web, social media, aging, spiritual struggles, and other observations. If you want to dig deeper, I invite you to join the conversation for more posts and thoughts.
