Dave is often referred to as Ranger Davie due to the honorary doctorate he was awarded in Natural Resource and Wildlife Management while studying remotely in the late 60s from Penn Forest State University’s Distance Learning Department. He accomplished this by single-handedly (his other hand was gruesomely severed by a reclusive wolverine) fishing in his canoe for a year in an undisclosed wetland in the Northern Boreal Forest of Canada.

While Dave continues to disappear on the weekends to impudently manage various state and federal parks across this great land, during the week you will find him helping faculty and administration with learning experience design projects at Michigan State University.

Dave is both a musician and photographer. He and his wife live in Jackson, Michigan. Together they own Meadow Lace Photography and have three young boys.

There are consistently strong contributions from a variety of disciplines about pedagogy and research-based best practices that are practical for multiple learning environments. There was a post today from Rob Kelly who references Dionne Thorne on the topic of Nine Online Course Development Tips. Although I would contend with some of the points made for the 8th tip Thorne lists, there were solid recommendations in the concise post that may make it worth a mouse click.
