# My profile

## Professional background

My name is Sue Davis and I have been facilitating groups for more than 20 years in New Brunswick, Canada.  Many moons ago I worked in the community with self-help groups for teens, for women, and for other specialized groups. In these groups I was a Life Skills Coach and my main goal was to help participants improve interpersonal communications and job seeking skills. Today I work at the New Brunswick Community College in Saint John. I teach Interpersonal Communications, Web 2.0, Presentation Skills and a variety of other courses. At times I work with faculty providing courses on Web 2.0, on Online Facilitation, and on Blackboard.  I also help organize professional development opportunities for faculty, everything from lunch 'n learn sessions to full day workshops.

## Feedback and notes from my WikiNeighbours

• Dear Sue, Welcome aboard. Feel free to jump right in and ask any questions you might have. I am here to help. Warm wishes --Patricia Schlicht 17:22, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

A couple of questions:

How do I upload an image? I tried the insert/edit image and it does not allow me to browse my computer for my photo.
(: Instructions for this task come later in the workshop. There are also instructions at/near the top of the introductions page in response to someone's question.--Jrradney 02:27, 23 July 2010 (UTC))

I have a message saying that I have "new messages" but when I click on the hyperlink it does not take me to any messages.

Thanks for any help that you can provide.

Thanks Patricia, I now have an image on my introduction. Now for my second question. I have a message saying that I have "new messages" but when I click on the hyperlink it does not show any messages. What am I missing here? --Suedavis 11:25, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

• Hi Sue, At the very top of your user page after you have logged in, is a tab called "Discussion", click on it and you will see the message. You have just discovered who to communicate within the wiki and leave messages to other people by going to their user page, click on their discussion tab and leaving your message, if you don't want to do it here under the WikiNeighbor sub-section of a user page. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 17:44, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, With a little bit more work applying what you have learned during the first week of this training (the use of the following features: bold, intent, headings, numbering, bullets etc) you will soon have earned your first Wiki certification under the WikiMaster programme. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 03:18, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, thanks for adding a photo. Kindly fill in the infobox at the top of your page. Just open the 'edit' tab above and you'll see it. I also moved your photo into the infobox. Great work so far. Keep going. Warm wishes,--Patricia Schlicht 15:51, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Patricia, I see the infobox when I view my page, but when I click the 'edit' tab I cannot find it. Help! --Suedavis 16:21, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, go to the very top of your page, it is there and is also called this "Infobox". It is where I moved your picture into. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 16:41, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Patricia, as I mentioned earlier, I can see the info box when I view my page. I see where you moved my picture. However, when I click the edit tab at the top of the page I cannot see the info box. Sorry, I need more direction. It is likely there .... but I cannot see it.  Should it be at the top of my page when I click edit? --Suedavis 16:57, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, you don't need to be at the top of your page, when you click at, you can scroll there after, shouldn't you be. I just double-checked your page, all is fine, you can see the Infobox when I click on 'edit'button at the top of your page. If you see the syntax and where I have put your picture, you have the infobox in front of you. Let me know. Warm wishes--Patricia Schlicht 17:06, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi again, I am afraid that this is a lost cause unless you can find a 'different' way to describe things or send me a screen capture. I am really, really confused. Earlier you asked me to fill in the "infobox". It seems I am not able to do this. Sorry, but I am getting frustrated. Might someone else be able to describe how to do this in another way? ie step one - click edit, step two - scroll to top of page, etc. --Suedavis 17:33, 29 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Patricia, I see that you have put the information in the infobox for me, thank you. However, that does not help me in learning how to do this on my own. I would still appreciate learning how to do this edit. Please find a way to walk through the steps to do this. Thank you. I am sorry if this is frustrating for you. I am an online facilitator and I know how difficult it is when the 'learner' (me) does not 'get it'.--Suedavis 09:42, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, I see that you have started a page on using Twitter for education. That's a great idea! I'm also very interested in that subject.--Mary Di Mónaco 14:06, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Mary, I am a bit behind as I was away on holiday but am working on catching up. I use Twitter regularly for professional development and it is a wonderful tool for building a network with other educators worldwide. Thanks for the note! --Suedavis 14:18, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue, when you get your Twitter tips up they will be of help to me, as I am cluelessabout it! Tallong 21:51, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
• I would like to collaborate with you on a number of your areas of interest, particularly communications and Web 2.0 technologies. My interests in the latter are primarily Diigo, Skype, Google Docs, and Google Wave as they interface with Moodle as a CMS. Although we are at opposite ends of Canada (smile), I think online collaboration could be quite valuable.--Jrradney 01:42, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
• Dear Sue, Thanks for your suggestions! They are all great tools and I'm definitely going to include them in the Web 2.0 tools page as soon as I can find the time to go on working on that. I'm on a pretty tight schedule these days. BTW, I wrote this message a couple of days ago (or something along the same lines, anyway) but it got lost as you were also editing. I wonder were it's ended up :-)--Mary Di Mónaco 04:50, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
• Hi Sue , Nice to hear from you.In which project are you working now. --Shijna 00:11, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
