Instructor Biography

Richard Hart, Learning Architect, Educational Gamer, Entrepreneur, Father

Hi I'm Richard Hart

I have a passion, well … maybe a bit of an obsession when it comes to effective learning and teaching.

I've spent the last decade researching and engaging with learning from the perspective of a teacher, a student, an entrepreneur and a game/interactive developer. These experiences have given me a unique and powerful understanding how people learn and will continue to learn in the future.

I'm also a veteran instructor at the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver, where I currently teach advanced technology courses.

When I"m not creating and teaching new courses on Udemy, I help show organizations both large and small how to effectively teach and learn by leveraging the latest research in technology and psychology.

I assist in the creation of effective online courses, training videos and tutorials and also help design and develop educationally focused interactive content and games for mobile devices.

You can find out more about me and my services and my other courses by visiting website richardhart
