About Simon

Crewmember #459

|| social media advocate | eLearning developer | community activist ||

I'm passionate about using social networking tools to benefit communities of learners & local communities. Ten plus years ago I made a tree-change: leaving Bondi for Blackheath, and leaving the media for sustainability, community & politics. The move led me to a new career focussed on online education in a university context – this encompassed administering, moderating & developing content for online teaching sites;
and theoretical research into the effectiveness of electronic portfolios in assessment. At UWS I also workked on an integration pilot for tertiary-qualified migrants & refugees;
and the 'Sex & Ethics' education program for young people. Merging my backgrounds in communications, digital media & academia, I'm working toward Web 2.0 information sharing, user-centred design & collaboration in creating effective online learning communities.
