Passion for Leadership & Educational technology 

I am an experienced researcher who evaluates, encourages and implements learning technologies including but not limited to different Learning Managment Systems (LMS), Cloud computing, Media, etc.

 

Educational, technological and mathematical fields of studies have enabled me to critically assess and suggest the best and evidenced-based practices on digital media to enhance students' learning and teaching excellence. 

 

As a part of my duties as a STEAM faculty member in The Learning Centre at  Douglas College (BC) and The Learning Hub Specialist at Simon Fraser University (BC), I provided pedagogically informed and technical consultation, education, training, support, and resources on learning technologies, and educational media use and development to educators, graduate students and others.

This has been my aim to identify and communicate emerging trends, needs, issues and best practices in all the institutes that I have been affiliated until now.

 

I have more than 6 years of experience in planning, managing, and supporting the use of online learning systems, technologies (including but not limited to Cloud Computing and LMSs) and development of educational media.
