I am Lou. I originally created this blog when I started following Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 MOOC#el30, in 2018. My intention was to keep up to date with elearning practise and trends while on a long planned career break. Now in the Covid19 days, as I prepare to rediscover the professional life again, I am restarting blogging about the topics that I feel passionate about. To my previous interests (adult online learning, instructional design, lifelong and informal learning, critical thinking, digital literacy), I have added educational online resources for children. I have added educational online resources for children. I have began to organise my favourites here: https://ideasfortout.wordpress.com/
I hold a Master in Educational Technology, and an MBA. I also have extensive managerial experience in web content management, digital project management, and e-learning consultancy, and e-learning product and programme management.
My initial thoughts on online identity are here.
I am preparing to rediscover the professional world after a long career break. Looking forward to it.
