MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
Following studies in Computer Science, Mathematics and Psychology, I taught Computer Science and Literacy, after which I embarked on a career in IT and general management in information and technology oriented organisations. My interests in computing, cognition and learning developed from individual to organisational learning. I managed IT in tertiary education and oil exploration and conducted post-graduate research in 'Information in Organisations from a Social Systems Perspective'.
I was able to put organisational learning into practice over many years in Vodacom/Vodafone operations as senior executive responsible for Knowledge-based Services, a division which included project and change management, research and analytics, consulting and organisational improvement. Knowledge, information and continuous learning were central to these services. I concurrently served as interim executive director of Elkanah House School for 2 years, developing a 10-year school strategy and supporting organisation based on its core value of creative learning.
An abiding interest in knowledge, information, and learning in all their forms led me back to education, where my interest and activity now is in whole school information strategy developments including E-learning, IT Services, Information and Library services. Schools now have to integrate relevant and effective teaching and learning into a world of abundant information by changing not only teaching and learning, but by transforming schools into true learning organisations. I am interested in enabling schools to develop the strategies, organisation, learning culture and processes for them to relevant and agile in the emerging information dispensation.
