ePortfolio: Dr. Simon Priest



This is my personal hybrid ePortfolio. It showcases my professional body of creative work and traces three decades of my evolution from outdoor academic (1986-1997), through entrepreneurial executive (1996-2005), to expert in teaching and learning technology for higher education (2004-today).

Educated in the sciences, I started as a professor in outdoor leadership and experiential learning. This led me to research and facilitate programs of executive leadership development and corporate team-building by outdoor or experiential training methods. These interests enabled me to start a successful dotcom for elearning, electronic facilitation, facilitative leadership, and virtual team-building by online experiential training methods. Upon successful sale of the company, I returned to higher education as an administrator and to business as a consultant in adult learning, disruptive/emerging technologies, and teaching excellence.

Contained in the first 5 menus, a visitor can find the models and theories that most people request (arranged under their respective paired titles as per the above evolution). The sixth and final menu provides access to past publications, lesser known accomplishments, a few special items, and several unique inventions. Alternatively, click on an image below. Throughout, I present professional information with a personal touch. You can expect a couple of stories to accompany the concepts within. Be sure to check out the "Selected Resources" further down this page.
