A Quick Work History

1. Webbed Feat - 1995 marked a career change for me. I took a leave from university administration to complete a graduate degree, and that led me to many projects related to teaching and learning online. I've worn many hats! ...student, researcher, instructor, software designer, community steward, administrator, instructional designer, course management site administrator, curriculum developer, project manager...  In 1998 I launched my company, Webbed Feat, and moved to Lac Le Jeune where I have worked from my home office ever since. I also commuted a few days per week for 5 years to Nicola Valley Institute of Technology in Merritt where I was hired as interim Registrar, but quickly moved to a faculty position in educational technology. 

 

2. BCcampus - I've been part of the Professional Learning Team since 2008 and have taken on a variety of roles and led many projects over the years. I coordinate and facilitate online workshops, events, and communities of practice for post-secondary faculty and staff who are interested in advancing their teaching practice. Over the years I have stewarded and supported leaders of several communities of practice, and coordinated online and on ground workshops, conferences, and a variety of other events. I was also involved in the development of the Learn Together Collaboratory and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Collaborative, both of which have transitioned to other projects. I recently cut back to part-time with BCcampus so I can devote more time to the next item on my list!

 

3. Being With Dogs - Working with dogs is a lifelong passion, and so is educating caregivers about building an excellent relationship with companion animals.
