I’m a strategist for open education initiatives at the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology at UBC. ┬áSpecifically, I’m engaged with projects that are leveraging emerging technologies, approaches, and pedagogies to support open learning. With a background in library science, I’m interested in understanding and supporting the removal of barriers that limit access to education, information, and knowledge. ┬áThe purpose of this blog is to document the ongoing projects, discussions, thoughts, and ideas for helping grow open education at UBC.

I recently offered an online self-study course in badges & badging through BC’s CEET (Community of Expertise in Educational Technology) and am in the process of starting the use of badges at UNB in a small way. We’re planning on possibly reopening the badging course again over the summer if there’s an audience. Let me know if you think anyone at UBC might be interested.
