Professional Experience:

Barclay Hudson is a consulting economist, educator, and environmental policy analyst with wide-ranging experience in organizational development and academic research. He received his EdD in educational planning and organizational development from Harvard University, where he also did undergraduate work in economics, including forecasting studies under Nobel Prize-winner Wassily Leontief. His doctoral studies led to several years of overseas work in technical assistance programs promoting educational and economic development in Chile, Costa Rica, Bangladesh, and Tunisia, under the sponsorship of the Ford Foundation, Harvard University, the United Nations, and other agencies.

Barclay has been a founding faculty member of three innovative graduate programs: Fielding's online Masters Program in Organizational Management; the Interdisciplinary Program in Urban Studies at the Catholic University of Chile; and the UCLA Graduate Program in Urban Planning.

During most of the 1980s, he worked full-time as project manager, economist, and industrial process analyst with a Los Angeles-based engineering firm specializing in economic and technical assessment of emerging technology, including business development based on commercialization of technologies developed in aerospace. He has also taught professional business workshops and seminars with numerous clients including Price Waterhouse and Gulf Oil.

Barclay has a long-standing professional involvement in environmental programs. In the early 1990s he served as Acting Director for the nonprofit organization, EcoSource International, designated by the U.S. EPA, Region 9 as its West Coast Institute for Cooperative Environmental Management, to promote public-private partnerships for the adaptation of emerging technology on pollution prevention. Since 1992, he is (part-time) Special Projects Coordinator for environmental programs (research, teaching, public outreach) at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, at the university's Center for Regenerative Studies and LandLab. His current work focuses on urban forests, their public benefits, and private sector returns on investm ent.

Barclay's recent publications on distance learning include book chapters on concepts of "candlepower," "the jungle syndrome,"and complexity theory applied to online learning; an article for the Sage Encyclopedia of Distributed Learning; and a research paper on "The 80/20 Principle Applied to Redesign of Faculty Roles Online." Work continuing on development of short "academic toolkits" for collaborative work online (several dozen so far, most in support of masters thesis research projects); and investigation of the "dialectics of critical appreciation," looking for ways to achieve better balance (or creative tension) between appreciative inquiry and critical thinking.
