Dr. Susan Bainbridge
MEMBER

Susan Bainbridge has been a leader and educator for the past 40 years. She received her doctoral degree in Distance Education at Athabasca University where she delved into the development of pedagogical models for open universities in developing countries. Her research interests include open universities in developing countries, ePortfolios, and leadership.
Over the past 30 years, Susan has lived in Canada’s Arctic, Japan, South Korea and is now based in the United Arab Emirates. She has met the challenge of change in her own culture and in different cultures in which she has lived and worked. Her ideas and philosophy of transformational leadership go far beyond the rhetoric of simply a ‘vision’ and she can articulate the process in such a way, that other potential leaders can understand the specifics and map out their personal journey to create and sustain positive change.
She firmly believes that educational technology holds the potential of becoming the ‘great equalizer’; helping to transform our worldview of knowledge and our global access to knowledge.
Susan has continued her leadership journey online as a Content Curator with her popular topics on Scoop.it and her articles on leadership. As well as her academic writing, Susan is the author of Hoarfrost and Cherry Blossoms, a novel based on her experiences in the Arctic and Japan.
