I am fortunate to be part of BCcampus, working mostly in Professional Learning, but happily crossing paths often with the Open Ed and Collaborative Services teams. We support folks in B.C. higher ed with their teaching and learning work by offering professional learning opportunities of various types.
Previously, I spent 10 years wearing various hats and fascinators at Royal Roads University in the Centre for Teaching & Educational Technologies (Manager of Teaching & Learning, Manager of Learning Technologies, Instructional Designer, ISW facilitator, etc.) . Before that, 8 years at Simon Fraser University (Centre for Online and Distance Education, Faculty of Education), and earned my MA in Education there too. I’m on LinkedIn if you want more info along those lines).
- Graphic Recording & Visual Practices: My passion for facilitation, fun, and doodling has flung me on the path of visual facilitation generally, and graphic recording in particular. I love this work because it fuses so many things I prize: supporting others, visuals, creativity, smelly markers. I do this work at sessions and events, and I teach others how to do it.
- Facilitation: I enjoy working with teams and groups as a process facilitator (e.g., team retreats, planning days, etc). I use a lot of Liberating Structures to help “unleash and include everyone” in the process.
