Hi I'm Shona.... welcome to my home page.
I have recently returned to New Zealand after spending many years living in Britain.
I worked as a Training Analyst for the British Military and enjoy writing, analysing and assessing training cadres/courses for a wide demographic. I now work for a great company called Symbiont based in Paraparaumu not far from Wellington. We specialise in providing exceptional training and resources for adults using distance, online, paperbased and blended learning.
I scraped through High School by the skin of my teeth, and then went to Secretarial College at Polytech before continuing with my studies later in life. I hold a Psychology Degree and a Diploma in Terrorism Studies. I am looking to undertake further study in the near future, and the following fields interest me:
- Child Psychology
- Business Administration
- Counselling and mediation
Professionally I am interested in creating online training resources for a wide demographic, it seems educational design is a specialist art and I have found there are not many courses to take the basics to an online platform. I am also looking forward to creating and designing blended learning with embedded literacy and numeracy, and gaining more qualifications in the educational (and teaching) sphere.
I am a qualified marksman, I love tramping, photography, salsa dancing, red wine and travel.
I have also been a Buddhist for 18 years (studying the Mahayana Tradition).
