Hi! I’m Natalia, I am an educator, curriculum designer, e-learning developer, and educational technologist. I am very happy to be a member of the Research Hub and to be a part of all the amazing activities happening here. I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Educational Technology and Learning Design at Simon Fraser University. This program has allowed me to understand more deeply the roles that digital technologies play in education and to think more thoroughly about the benefits and detriments of technology in the processes that underlie teaching and learning. As for my thesis research, I am going to investigate the use of open data by instructors and students in higher education, through the lens of the Technology Adoption Model (TAM) framework. In my free time, I love nature and being outdoors, and my favorite activities are hiking, camping and stand-up paddling.
