Adult Learning and Global Change (ALGC)
For the past twenty years I have worked as a volunteer educator in Liberia, W. Africa. A M.Ed. gives merit to my ongoing efforts to support both old and young learners in a challenging post-war environment. Some of my teaching is done as workshops on basic literacy. I also run a community center where New Gate Library provides individual learning and encourages reading and problem solving. My present challenge is to move into the computer age with technology that will motivate and lift-up all learners. This involves installing both a computer lab and software at the library. My interest in the Masters program at UBC was especially in the area of adult learning, which provided a great backdrop for my own learning needs and a lens from which to analyze and apply new methods to the local situation.
