Publishing Experience: I have operated a small niche market mail order publishing business, Prosperity Press, for five years. Prosperity Press specialises in Experiential Learning and Animation and Economic Development. Several titles are listed in Appendix A.
Web Experience: I have gained substantial experience in this area through designing, mounting, operating and housekeeping several web sites, compiling four CD-Rom’s, and lecturing on the web at Masters Level. A key area of expertise (both message and medium) draws from my involvement in the design, mounting and delivery of the SCU Masters Unit ED730 Futures Studies: Methods, Issues and Visions (1996-7). The first completely web mounted Masters unit to be offered by Southern Cross University. The overall program involved a hyper-archiving bulletin board, Public assess Futures Forum with hyperlinks to Futures sites around the world and password protected interactive web courseware for ED730 itself.
