About Emily

I am an Instructional Designer in the eLearning unit of the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and have worked as an instructional designer for over 25 years, working with faculty enhancing their courses with technology, teaching blended courses (combining face-to-face with online technologies), and teaching fully at a distance, using synchronous technologies (narrow-cast satellite, web-conferencing, audio-conferencing, tele-conferencing) and asynchronous technologies (like D2L). More recently, I became Creative Commons certified and have begun working with faculty who are engaging in Open Education work using WordPress, Pressbooks, H5P and other open platforms.  

In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with hubby Kevin and our many kitties, as well as photography, blogging, walking, meditation, and creative writing.
