Some more misc bg stuff
Prior to my current position at BCcampus, I was the Manager of Learning Technologies at CTET at Royal Roads University, and also worked at Camosun College supporting faculty in the Distributed Education department.
In 2002, I attended the Application and Management of Information Technology (AMIT) program at the University of Victoria and completed my Masters in Learning and Technology at Royal Roads University in 2011. My Masters thesis examined how educators use Twitter as a tool within a Personal Learning Network (PLN).
Before working in educational technology, I had a bit of a career as a radio broadcaster, working at a few radio stations in Alberta and BC, many which no longer exist. I sincerely regret any part I might have had in their disappearance from the airwaves. In a previous life I had long hair and was the hippie station manager of Global Roots Radio Village 900 (another station that, as of March 5th, 2012, no longer exists).
I blog here at edtechfactotum.com. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. I have also started using Mastodon more. My personal blog is clintlalonde.net.
