Hello world, I’m Adrian.
I am very excited to be in this class as I love to make. My background is in engineering and then quickly my focus turned to education. I have taught in a lot of different formal and informal settings from physics at BCIT, design and safe tool usage at MakerLabs, a makerspace in Vancouver, and sailing in summer camps.
Currently I hold two part time positions, one with the Faculty of Land and Food Systems at UBC as an Online Learning Designer in the Learning Centre where we support faculty pedagogically and technically. My other position is teaching screenprinting remotely with Wachiay Studio. We have built a teaching and learning program from the ground up starting in August, 2020. We are using a wordpress site, similar to this as the LMS (inspiration came from a previous class I took from David). Currently we are teaching our second cohort of students. You’ll be able to see student’s reflection posts, but much of the educational content is hidden.
When I’m not working or studying, I like to explore the outdoors – I am so excited for summer. We are planning to hike the North Coast Trail at the end of June if restrictions lighten!
