Author Tags: Education, Fiction

A former Deputy Minister for Advanced Education in Alberta, Berghoffer self-published The Visioneers: A Courage Story about Belief in the Future (Vancouver: Creative Learning International Press, 1992). Purportedly a novel, it is a 526-page tract about the teaching of creative thinking. A group of character dedicated to creative learning are its focus. His partner and wife Dr. Geraldine Schwartz of the Vancouver Learning Centre rehabilitates children and adults with learning disabilities. "We have to address the issue of gaining control of knowledge," he says. "Information isn't knowledge. We're not looking at the philosophical issues of technology, for example. That's why the earth is getting into more and more difficulty."
