I am a Learning Design Strategist with the Vice President Research & Innovation office, focused on strengthening resources and building organizational capacity to support research excellence. In this role, I collaborate with faculty, staff, students, and external partners in exploring how best to create a strong and diverse research culture that embraces the highest standards of integrity, collegiality and service at the University of British Columbia.

My previous role as the educational developer at the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) heavily informs my current practice. I have been designing, facilitating and implementing teaching and learning professional development initiatives, programs, and workshops for faculty, staff, and students at CTLT since 2013.

This website acts as a platform to communicate my philosophy and to highlight my learning and growth as an educational developer, translating philosophy into practice. Within these pages, you’ll find my philosophy statement, resources, and documents that I’ve developed to support my educational development work to bolster instructors’ impact on student learning.
