Camosun expresses its sorrow and stands alongside the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc

Camosun College is horrified by the news that the remains of 215 children have been found in the grounds of the former Kamloops Residential School, which sat on the traditional territory of the Tk’emlúps te Secwepemc. Our hearts go out to the families and communities who were and are directly affected by this news and by the original loss of their children. We are all affected. This affirms Camosun’s commitment to redressing the impact of our shared history. In memory of these children, Camosun flags on both campuses will be lowered.

Geneviève’s career has spanned the visual arts, commerce, and technology and she draws on all three to inform her teaching practice. She worked for several years in “edutainment” game design, graphic design, web design, and eCommerce before joining the Public Service. During her time with the Department of National Defence, she worked and taught in the areas of information management, website development, database integration, and online military training.

She was deeply involved with the initial strategic expansion of online learning in the Canadian Navy. She began teaching more extensively when she developed and taught online Master’s programs at Royal Roads University before coming to teach full time here at Camosun.

Geneviève is a Camosun alumnus in the Visual Arts, holds an MBA in Digital Technologies Management from Royal Roads University and is continuing the research she began in her doctoral studies with a focus on Distance Education.

Geneviève loves working with students to help them connect their learning to the real world and their own individual interests.
