About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation Retired EdTech Facilitator & College Instructor
Location Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada
Introduction My last teaching position was as a facilitator in the Instructional and Leadership Development Centre at Saskatchewan Polytechnic where my job was to facilitate instructors and departments on educational issues in general and education technology in particular. It capped a 40+ year career that ranged from one room schools to colleges; kindergarten to university level; and special education to regular classes to leadership positions. I retired in June 2016. "Old Moose?", you ask. I'm old and as big as a moose. I also wanted a personal persona separate from my professional persona of Ron Smallwood, A.A., B.S., M.Ed., F.C.P.
