Don Zillioux, Ph.D., the Founder and Chairman of SDW, made the announcement today describing Dr. Fulford as “both academically prepared and Internet savvy”.
“ Mark is exactly the right professional at the right time to guide SDW’s initiative into online learning with both the technical competence and instructional materials required to surpass anything in the marketplace today.”
Dr. Fulford earned his Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Human Resource Management from the Kelley Graduate School of Business at Indiana University. He holds both masters and undergraduate degrees in pharmacy. He has held faculty positions with Cornell University, California State University and the University of Central Missouri. “Learning is defined differently that traditional corporate training which is typically less interactive and not usually actually applied in the daily workforce,” Dr. Fulford stated. “The approach that SDW Learning takes is to provide a learning experience that managers will take back to their office and be able to immediately use for on-the-job improvement.” To read more about Dr. Fulford's discussion on "Learning vs. Training", see his article on the website.
