A Brief Bio (Finally…)

26 Dec 2005 (Mon)

Finally, a post on who I am — quite reluctantly. Reason: I didn’t see the need to do so. Seemed to me better to let pieces of information emerge as time goes by. My purpose in starting this blog was to reflect on issues pertaining to my work and interests, NOT talk about myself. Still, Jakob Nielsen made a good point on the need for author biographies in weblogs two months ago. So, here it is.

My name is Joo Khim (you can call me JK). I am an educational designer and technologist at an institute of higher learning in Singapore. I also provide training and consultancy on Engineering Communication (a.k.a. technical English or untechnical communication) and web design (a.k.a. information design), as well as the use of blogs, wikis, and other free open-source software (FOSS).

I have worked in both local and multinational corporations over the past 17 years. My work experiences include computer programming, systems analysis, multimedia testing, field interviewing, news reporting, technical writing and editing, staff management, elearning design and development, training and consultancy.

Currently, I’m almost completing a Masters of Art in Instructional Design & Technology (M.A. IDT) program at the National Institute of Education. I’m also a member of the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) and the Singapore Tertiary English Teachers’Society (STETS). In 2000-2003, I was the president of the Singapore chapter of the Society for Technical Communication.

    And some accolades & recommendations over the years:

    Distinguished Chapter Service Award from Society for Technical Communication (STC), 2004:

    “In recognition of your exemplary efforts revitalizing the Singapore chapter and continuing selfless contributions to chapter growth.”

    Region 7 Director-Sponsor Award from STC, 2002-2003:

    “For your contribution toward the 2002 IDEA conference, and the use of technology to add online seminars to the complement of sessions.”

    Manager, Teaching & Learning Centre, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, 2002:

    “I have found her to be a very independent and conscientious worker. Her key strengths are in the areas of academic research and writing which she has demonstrated most ably in the projects which she undertook, specifically in the development of a case-based knowledge resource for academic staff (ESPRIT Knowledge Portal) and through her contributions as a participant in an external training program on instructional design for eLearning. Her attention to detail makes her a meticulous worker.”

    Fellow & International President (1995-1996), STC; Assistant Professor, City University of Hong Kong, 2002:

    “[Her] leadership… During her three-year tenure as president of the Singapore chapter of the STC, the chapter has experienced growth in membership, strong programs, and the successful launch of the IDEA conference. She has led these efforts independently, with little or no support from the organization’s office near Washington DC. If anyone in the region wants to learn about technical communication, [JK] is the person to contact.”

    Vice President, System Integration Products, Eutech Cybernetics Pte Ltd, 2002:

    “I have had the privilege of serving on the committee, under her leadership since May 2000. During the three years… I have been able to observe many facets of her leadership skills. She has been able to inspire my fellow committee members to give of their time and serve the profession with much zeal. Given the busy lifestyle of those in the high tech industry, this is no insignificant achievement. Although she is gentle by nature, she does not fear to stand firm when the situation demands it. By doing so, she has been able to “stem the rot” and see us through many a difficult period. I have also observed her to be an inexhaustible source of ideas when coming up with activities that count toward professional development.”

    General Manager, General Electric Company of Singapore, 1995:

    “This is the first time I am reading IT Singapore and I am quite impressed by the contents. I especially enjoyed reading your article on lady bosses and their IT tools. It is good to know what others are doing.”

    Manager, Information Services Division, Government of Singapore Investment Corporation, 1994:

    “My company is currently in the process of re-looking at our network strategy, having grown quite quickly over the last couple of years. Ethernet switching is one option we are considering to increase the performance on our Ethernet backbone. The article was interesting and provided me with a quick understanding between switches and routers… keep up the good work your magazine is doing in bringing IT news to Singapore.”

    Manager, Computer & Information Systems Unit, Ministry of Information & the Arts, 1992:

    “Her technical competence, dedication to her work and drive to achieve high quality work paid much dividends in the following areas:

    1. Assisted in conducting a strategic information systems study in 1991;
    2. Implementing and supporting the Ministry-wide Electronic Mailing system since May 1991;
    3. Assisted in the development of an application system;
    4. As project leader in scoping the requirements for a project for National Museum;
    5. As the standards officer for the department and successfully completed some standards for application development teams.

    “I have no doubt [JK] will thrive well in any environment that is technically stimulating.”
