I am an educational technologist currently working at the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning at Vancouver Island University. My role involves researching and deploying educational technologies, administering, developing and integrating elearning software and developing faculty competencies in the use of emerging technologies.
I got my start in higher education in 2005 with an internship from the Commonwealth of Learning which took me to Windhoek, Namibia in Southern Africa. I worked for three years in information technology development in Namibia before relocating to Cape Town, South Africa to complete my masters in education technology.
At the University of Cape Town I worked in the Centre for Educational Technology as a research assistant supporting the creation of open educational resources (OER) by faculty and the adaptation and use of OER by students.
I am currently pursuing my PhD in education with the Technology Integration and Evaluation (TIE) Lab at the University of Victoria. My PhD work explores faculty engagement with open educational practices and open scholarship.
