I am excited and humbled to be working with CEE’s Educational Development team within the Curriculum and Instruction Division (CID). As Associate Director for Educational Development, my goal is to contribute to a positive, accessible, and successful learning experience for all SFU students. To support this vision, I work with the ED Team and our collaborators, to listen to the wants and needs of instructors, TAs, staff, and administration and provide evidenced-based support, resources, and professional development for educators as they explore their own authentic teaching and learning practice.
I have had the wonderful experience to work and learn in several universities. Prior to arriving at SFU in January 2021, I was the Assistant Director for TA Development and Recognition at the University of Georgia's Center for Teaching and Learning, where I taught graduate pedagogy courses, facilitated TA orientations and ongoing TA professional development, and contributed to faculty development through workshops and course redesign institutes. I moved to Georgia from London, Ontario, where I completed my PhD in Anthropology (bioarchaelogy) at Western University and worked for several years in their Centre for Teaching and Learning. I completed my MA at Louisiana State University, working with their forensic anthropologist and teaching first year anthropology.
From these experiences, I bring to SFU a curiosity to grow through engagement with SFU’s teaching and learning community as well as an interdisciplinary perspective to my support of educators, rooted in my academic background and educational development work in Ontario and Georgia. What does that mean? I am excited to meet each and every instructor here at SFU and hear more about their teaching motivations and goals.
Perhaps more important, I am a mother to two young and voracious explorers, a gardener in whatever space I can find, and gentle hiker who has happily returned to Vancouver after a 23 year hiatus.
