Author Biography - W.Owen Cole
W. Owen Cole's teaching career began in 1954 and has continued into the twenty-first century, a period of considerable social change but, in his opinion one of too little educational response. In England he has taught at all stages of education from primary schools to university and in India at universities. His principal interest has been in teacher training. His life has been one of opportunities gratefully received. Readers are encouraged to share his journey and pursue their own. All that is needed is vision, empathy and a willingness to accept the unexpected.
