Welcome to my website
Here you will find information about my research interests and consulting practice. If any of this sparks an interest in discussion, feel free to send me a comment via the contact page. If you are looking for a consultant to assist with systems consulting, educational courseware, instructional design, or research related to my areas of expertise, please contact me. I hope you enjoy your stay.
Systems Thinking and Instruction
Systems thinking is the basis of many of the tools I like to use for the design of learning environments. The following graphic illustrates, in a simplified way, how systems theory evolved into systems thinking, and how the systems disciplines can contribute to training and education today (click on the graphic to expand).
A Scientific Approach to Systems Consulting
My professional purpose at this time is to apply scientific rigor to systems consulting. This primarily includes systematic design of training and education applications. However, my background also includes a wide range of consulting projects, in business, technical and scientific domains.
Instructional Technology Research
A decade of original research in a variety of topics in instructional technology has prepared me to analyze complex systems, identify user needs, apply basic research where appropriate, create appropriate designs, and produce results for clients.
