Who is your hero in learning design? Mine is Ruth Clark and her associate Ann Kwinn.
I picked up again Ruth's book Developing Technical Training and it was like climbing the mountain to visit the monastery of the great philosopher Ruth. I came out inspired and refreshed by the founding principles in the book.
Ruth's book invented the playground where kids can play around. Regardless of our new ideas in design, we can find the roots in Ruth's playground.
The rules stay the same. Followers to Ruth just added trimmings and colors and new activites ... But all played Ruth's rules.
For Ann Kwinn, thanks for your inspiring programs using stories.
