Educational Philosophy: Technology is changing our lives in countless ways and re-training is now a fact of life. We truly must be life long learners and responsible for our own education. In this environment, the role of the instructor has changed from deliverer of knowledge to facilitator of learning. Personal education is the key to the future and technology is a tool to help us on our journey.
