Chemical Engineer with 35 years experience that is very familiar with math, physics and chemistry. Let's roll!

Methodology

I like to develop a friendship with my students -- to determine what there strengths and weaknesses are. I will then use those strengths to attack the weakness. I use a combination of lecture type of instruction but then also use personal "hands-on" type of instruction. Most important -- learning can be fun and I enjoy having fun!!

Background

I am a Chemical Engineer that went back and got his MBA and his doctorate in business. I have run a training academy for over ten years and have been associated with a junior college in Texas. I have also worked for an internet based college and have a great success in my students gradating from this facility.

EDUCATION

University of Phoenix, Phoenix, AZ, School of Advanced Studies, Leadership
DBA, May 2012; GPA 3.83
• Dissertation: “A Quantitative Kirkpatrick Level 1 and 2 Study of Equipment Specialist Apprentice Operations Training”
Committee: Steve Roussas, PhD (Chair) School of Advanced Studies
Lori Brooks, PhD School of Advanced Studies
Carla Lane-Johnson EdD. School of Advanced Studies
• Fields: apprenticeship, craft, equipment specialist, Kirkpatrick, Luminant, operations training, power plant
• Statistical analysis using Minitab
• The primary purpose of the quantitative experimental study is to compare employee learning outcomes for a course of study that is offered in two formats: explicit and tacit instructor led and explicit e-learning operations format. A Kirkpatrick Level 2 course examination is used to establish a pretest knowledge baseline and to measure posttest learning outcomes for each instructional format. A secondary purpose is to compare responses of the two groups using a Kirkpatrick Level 1 customer satisfaction index survey. The Kirkpatrick Level 1 results indicated significantly better results for instructor led training. There was not a significant difference in the Kirkpatrick Level 2 results between the two training modalities.
