* certifications in teaching online, faculty development, curriculum development.

Except for two years as a science teacher, my work experience in the past 27 years has been in higher education as a teacher and educational development specialist.  I have been involved in various technology integration projects, teacher and student support related to teaching and learning, and technology and online program development. I also have worked on other teaching and learning enhancement projects such as academic failure,  the first-year learning experience, support for student learning, assessment of student learning outcomes. My teaching experience has included a variety of courses such as computer literacy, multimedia design, and development, teaching with technology, online learning program development, instructional design, learning to learn in the first year. My volunteer work has traditionally been around issues related to poverty and socio-economic empowerment. However, lately, I have been doing a bit of work in education.

Generally, my teaching areas include teaching in higher education, educational technology, instructional design, and of late, learning to learn for first-year students.

My research areas include learning in the first year, faculty development, elearning (including learning and technology implementation), and scholarship of teaching and learning. Methodologically my passion is around qualitative research and systematic literature reviews, though very open to engaging in other forms of research.

I have recently started co-supervising students working on mobile devices in medical education and healthcare settings and working with the student on submitting a manuscript from the thesis.

Our Department does not offer a graduate program. However, I am open to co-supervising students in my research areas from other departments.
