Endorsements & Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Margery when she was invited to co-direct an online M.A. program in adult learning at Edgewood College. In preparation for this position, Margery participated in our online faculty certification process and supported our efforts to design outstanding programs and curricula for adult learners.

Throughout her time at Edgewood, Margery taught and modelled outstanding practices in program design, curriculum design and teaching of adult learners. She quickly became a mentor to the faculty teaching in the program as well as to her colleagues in leadership.

Margery is a transformative educator. During her time at Edgewood College she led face-to-face seminars for faculty and students that provided some of the richest professional learning I have experienced. In workshops and retreats that were condensed into short periods of several days, Margery demonstrated her skill at facilitating rich learning for adults that provided experiential understanding of the many practices she advocates. She gave us not only a clear and well-researched framework for understanding adult learner motivation, but also many strategies for implementing the various aspects of the framework. Years later, faculty and former students continue to describe the value of these experiences to their learning and to their professional lives.

Margery is a generous, creative and transformative educator. Her research on inclusive teaching of adult learners demonstrates her deep understanding cultural diversity, equity, and racial justice. She is a mentor and role model who transforms her own life and work into remarkable teaching experiences for students and colleagues. She is a gift to every community that has had the good fortune to work with her.”
