Here is a brief representation of the type feedback I regularly receive.
Passionate about helping others
…you have such an obvious passion for certain areas of your work, the capacity to take it and run with it, and you manage to find the time to read volumes on the info aside from many other commitments w/family, fitness and FTE work. You are also a ‘teacher’ and work well with people at all levels and ages. I can see you really claiming a nitch in an area of your choice and contributing, teaching and leading on a whole other level.
E-learning & Course Design
“Great course, easy to understand and follow. Good job!”
“I’ve been through so many plant safety meetings over the years on this subject and must say that this presentation is hands down the most well put together and presented info I’ve ever been through. I would highly recommend this video and quiz to other plants in various industries across the U.S. There is info in this that I was not aware of or told about in the past especially the medical and recovery after a fall. Job well done.”
“Considering the topic of Bloodborne Pathogens can only be so exciting, the course material was presented well, and the content very informational.”
“Great job, very informative and good use of visuals to demonstrate proper equipment and procedures.”
“When I need a quality training solution, I always go to Mike; his work is always polished, accurate and timely. At a recent NERC CIP audit, a regional entity committed how our on-line training course (that was developed by Mike) was one of the best they had ever seen. I can always count on Mike!”
Practical, easy to follow instructional design:
“I wanted to say how much I appreciate the format that you present these bits of information to us. They are small enough to be remembered and large enough to have good content. Keep up the good work!”—-“We are very lucky to have someone like you — someone who genuinely enjoys helping others. I like the fact that you see the whole picture around learning and teaching and how they are linked! I have said to you before that you inspire me to keep moving forward with learning, learning and more learning.”—-“Just wanted to say thank you for continuing this great service. You are a talented writer and I can’t count how many times your tips have helped me out. Keep up the good work!”—-“It got right to what I needed help with and wanted to learn. Thank you!
“Mike, you did a fantastic job of putting this together. I enjoyed the informalness of being able to check out the “tools of the week” and deciding whether or not those tools would be useful. If they were, I used them. I blogged about them. Blogging alone was a huge discovery for me and a natural fit. I just needed a push to start writing. This Learn Camp provided that. Twitter was also a score. Already I’m using much of the information I’ve found on Twitter. Where else can you send a popular author a comment and receive a personal response?
…I just discovered a pool I’d ignored for several years and I’ve jumped into the shallow end with both feet. Big thanks to you and all of my fellow-Learn Campers.!

Principles of Learning Design
“Mike , yet again I thoroughly enjoyed the seminar. I agree with one of the individuals that said you would need about 6 more of these.. only I am thinking double that LOL.. I love how these seminars are taught and I wish we could do them longer.. I was shocked by how fast the time goes by.”
“I’m looking forward to the rest of this series, and hope you expand it. This works so much better for me. I can pick up some tips, put them to work, and then come back to learn more.”
