My career has moved around the twin loci of skills training and instructional design. While the theory I learned in graduate school has always been central to my professional thinking, I have also developed a set of personal practice guidelines over the years based on my own experience of what works and what doesn't.

These are my "Haiku of Good Practice." Just for fun, I've put them in the traditional Japanese Haiku form of three lines of five syllables, seven syllables, and five syllables. I challenge myself to live by them when I teach or design the instructional materials.
I've also included a brief sketch on how I have been influenced by a few of my "Educational Theory Heroes".
