Ontario, Canada Oct 04, 2020

As a change leader, an educational researcher and a learning community advocate he has worked with groups around the world to understand how learning has been impacted by our access to connective technologies. In a moment of weakness in 2008 while working on a very large online course that happened to be open, he coined the word MOOC. Dave has published on open education, Rhizomatic Learning, MOOCs (Massive/Open Online Courses), and the impact of technology on the future of high education.

His bricks and mortar work in education has lead him through edtech, communications, recruitment , retention, academic planning (including learning analytics), strategic planning for k12 and now managing the Schulich Medical School’s Windsor campus. Online he has hosted hundreds of live podcasts, participated in the creation of half a dozen learning communities, written hundreds of blog posts and more than a few tweets

All of Dave’s work centers around how coming to know is a messy, imprecise process at once intensely individual and necessarily human. He also doesn’t believe that learning can be measured, which often gets him into trouble.
