Context and Critical Thinking in Course Design

At the 2010 ACT MoodlePosium in Canberra next week, I am chairing the Friday morning "Andragogy" session featuring Margaret Robson (CIT) on "Engaging learners by incorporating critical thinking and reflection" and Srinivas Chemboli (ANU) on "Contextualising learning outcomes and course design in Moodle". I need to introduce the speakers, and while these are people I know, I did not want to make the mistake of assuming I knew of all the accomplishments, so here is what I found with a search:
