I’m certainly finding my direction becoming more and more defined. With a Master of Distance Education degree, 9+ years teaching in postsecondary, including some online, and motivation to engage in doctoral studies with e-learning research, it makes sense that I get back to online teaching or, as I see it, facilitation in most cases. The benefits will include opportunities to develop further subject and curriculum design expertise, work with new technologies (tied into my planned research), and provide funding for my endeavours. Yes, the last is so important.

I have prepared a new summary résumé to send out, and the full CV is available to follow. Here’s some highlights in case you happen to be interested 🙂

I am going to focus my search in Canada and the UK where I have citizenship. From my following of an adjunct faculty discussion list, I note that there are issues hiring online faculties from other than certain states. Some are excluded for various reasons, and hiring outside does not seem to be prevalent. Please corect me if I am wrong.
