“My journey as a Learning Technologist started in 2007 and has taken many turns and overcome many obstacles. What has remained throughout is the question of ‘what is a Learning Technologist’?
Looking at published work and personal experience I have collected my blog posts together in this eBook and added further commentary and notes to provide the background to the posts and the work I am engaged in.”
This ebook covers my 13 part reflection on what it means, to me, to be a Learning Technologist – from personal experiences to research and observations of what is happening in the world of educational / instructional / learning technology.
“David starts with some institutional definitions but then the opening chapters really give a flavour of the diversity of the tasks performed by learning Technologists; championing new learning technology, delivering staff training, one to one support etc. It’s clear from these chapters that the role and duties and even the job titles of learning technologists varies in different institutions. Overall I enjoyed reading this book. I would even go so far to say it should be essential reading for all Learning Technologists….it will get you thinking and questioning what you do – which is no bad thing!” Chris Rowell: “What is a Learning Technologist?”
“Providing a clear and concise definition of what it is to be a Learning Technologist in changing times. Well written.” Karaitiana (Amazon review)
