Hello to everyone. My name is Joyce McKnight. I am an assistant professor of Community and Human Services at the Center for Distance Learning of Empire State College/SUNY, a comprehensive college chartered by the State University of New York, primarily dedicated to the needs of adult and non-traditional learners. The ideals of open access to learning materials fit nicely into both the values of Empire State College and to my personal ideals. I hold a Doctorate in Adult Education with concentrations in both distance learning and adult education from the Pennsylvania State University. I am anxious to develop the skills needed to share ideas, but even with six years of direct experience in the development of online courses, new technologies make me nervous. I appreciate the user friendly nature of wiki-educator and especially the phrase "Don't worry. We will help you." I am especially interested in linking with other educators who are interested in adult education as a field of social practice and who identify with terms like participatory education, popular education, critical education, community engagement, community education etc. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at US (518)-696-4775.

Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours
- Great start, Joyce. I'm looking forward to seeing more content and a few links to the wonderful work you are doing online and face-to-face at the college. --Dr. Nellie Deutsch 14:40, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
- Great to see you in the tutorial, Joyce, and to see your user page. Do you have any concerns about the quality of educational resources developed using an open authoring approach? If so, what are your concerns? If not, how does an open authoring approach contribute to high quality learning materials?--Phil Bartle 02:57, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
