Launched on September 19, 2007, “Doctorious: My Adventures in Academia” is a blog written by me, Matthew A. Gilbert, MBA. I am a teacher, researcher, and trainer with more than 25 years of experience writing, speaking, and consulting.

Guided by the motto “learn continuously, live generatively” I develop courses for delivery in person, via blended learning, and online. I also facilitate corporate training for entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 employees, and government officials. My research interests include artificial intelligence, digital economy, digital marketing, educational technology, entrepreneurship education, innovation, and the sharing economy.

A charismatic communicator, I delivered a TEDx talk titled “Moving Forward from Failure” in which I presented a personal perspective about pivoting and progressing over obstacles. A lifelong learner, I hold a BA in English from the University of California at Santa Barbara and an MBA from Woodbury University. I later earned a certificate in innovation and entrepreneurship from the Stanford University Center for Professional Development.

When asked why teaching is my tenure I explain, “education empowers me to influence individuals and impact organizations while simultaneously improving myself.”
