Filed under: — techrite @ 1:51 pm

Sean Bennett is a technical writer specializing in the education of Motive Power technicians.  His industry background was with a Freightliner Dealership followed by Mack Trucks Incorporated.  Sean’s first teaching experiences came at Mack Trucks and he subsequently joined the faculty at Toronto’s Centennial College where he Coordinated the Truck and Diesel Department. There, he led a number of initiatives to promote competency-based learning outcomes including the overhaul of Provincial Curricula in a number of Motive Power Technical Programs. While at Centennial, he began publishing and editing books.  In 2009, he left the college to devote all his time to writing, revising, and editing academic textbooks.

Because the trucking industry runs on the leading edge of motive power technology, Sean maintains close ties with industry to ensure that his writing retains currency.  He believes that the modern technician is requires flexibility to be effective and that any person working with technology today must learn continually through a career.  In speaking to schools and educators, he stresses that formal certification should be regarded as a first step in progressing to technical excellence and that those who are unable to accept change both in themselves and with technology will be left behind.  In addition, he emphasizes that technology has transformed the ways in which adults learn and that any teaching and learning program must adapt to a wide range of learning styles. Sean believes that a modern approach to developing technicians of excellence should emphasize education over training.
