“So, what do you do?”
I am the Director of Learning and Teaching at BCcampus, where my team and I focus on projects, initiatives and events that support Learning & Teaching, including digital and online learning in B.C. public post-secondary education.
Previously, I spent 10 years wearing various hats and fascinators at Royal Roads University in the Centre for Teaching & Educational Technologies (Manager of Teaching & Learning, Manager of Learning Technologies, Instructional Designer, ISW facilitator, etc.) .
Before that, 8 years at Simon Fraser University (Centre for Online and Distance Education, Faculty of Education), and earned my MA in Education there too.
I’m on LinkedIn if you want more info along those lines.

I have a special interest in facilitation, particularly…
- Liberating Structures: I love working with teams and groups as a process facilitator (e.g., team retreats, planning days, etc.). I use a lot of Liberating Structures to help “unleash and include everyone” in the process. I also offer workshops about Liberating Structures to help others add these powerful tools to their toolkits. Oh, and with Beth Cougler Blom, I help steward the Victoria Liberating Structures Users Group.
- Visual Practices: Passion for facilitation, fun, markers, and doodling flung me on the path of using visual approaches, including graphic recording. I usually do this work large on paper taped to the wall, but I also work small/digital (on an iPad, usually with the app, Paper by Fifty-Three. I share some of my recordings/sketchnotes, doodles and other illustrations on Instagram and Flickr
