I am a Ph.D. in Educational Technology (master’s degree in Distance Education and graduate diploma in Multimedia Instructional Design). My research interests include efficient online teaching and learning practices, faculty development, learner-centred environments, blended learning, learning communities, networked-learning technology, open educational resources, social media, collaboration, the impact of globalization on universities and increased and open access in higher education.
A seasoned telecommuter, my background is in education as a teacher, lecturer, senior manager, instructional designer and academic advisor. I have presented at major international conferences such as the American Educational Research Association, the Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education and the Association for Educational Communications and Technology. I also contributed a chapter in a book edited by Zehra Akyol and Randy Garrison “Educational Communities of Inquiry: Theoretical Framework, Research and Practice“.
For my doctoral research, I have had the wonderful opportunity to work in French and in English with inspiring faculty members from various North American universities. I truly enjoy networking and I am a strong proponent of learning communities (communities of practice, communities of inquiry…).
Interested in collaboration, interaction, constructivism in higher education? I’d love to hear from you!
I also have a website in French.
