This is the start of our Celebrity Wall of Fame in The Lab.

We have Webinar Pioneers, Collaborative Adventurers, Self-paced Trailblazers and Blended Learning Explorers.

After we create one of these resources we get the signature and a short message from the ‘celebrity’ (consultant/project owner) to stick onto the wall.

‘Running’ writing



Was trying a GPS enabled running app on my phone.

My run home from work the other day was brought you by the letters r, u and n.

I love this article about design and Design Thinking from Connie Malamed.

She does a good job in summing up the information in a 10 dot point article that takes about 10 minutes to read.

Started using a platform called SurveyGizmo.

Sort of like SurveyMonkey but on steroids.

So far liking the user interface.

Time flies

It’s been 2.5 years since my last blog post.

It’s been 2.5 years since I started at my current position.

Been so busy and engaged with my work that I’ve only had time now in the end of year holidays to to catch up on writing some blog posts.
