I have been in the post-secondary education sector for many years and am currently the Faculty Development Consultant in the Centre for Learning and Program Excellence. I’ve been at Red River College since 2010, first as an Instructional Designer, then as an Educational Developer. I also practice what I preach (or try to) as an instructor at the University of Winnipeg, teaching face-to-face and recently, online! Prior to RRC, I worked at the University of Winnipeg in the Centre for Distributed/Distance Learning and ran my own Media Services Company. I am a lifelong learner with a B.A. Administrative Studies/ Justice & Law Enforcement (UWinnipeg), an M.A. Educational Studies (Athabasca), an EdD (University of British Columbia), a Graduate Diploma in Instructional Design (Athabasca), and a Certificate in Law (Queen’s). My dissertation was titled “Educational Leaders’ Understandings of Internationalization: A Case Study”. Areas of interest: Internationalization of higher education, academic integrity, effective teaching in face-to-face, online, and blended modes, teaching teachers how to teach (aka Faculty Development), professionalism, law and education, leadership of higher education, teaching atypical learners (e.g. neuro-divergent and otherwise challenged students), and educational technology.
