About Robin

Hello! My name is Robin Fast. I grew up on Treaty 1 Territory in southern Manitoba and have been privileged to live on Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ territories for most of my adult life. I have been a faculty member at Camosun College since 2005, teaching primarily in the Community, Family, and Child Studies diploma. I am passionate about creating welcoming, challenging, and engaged environments that centre learners and the learning process.

I am pleased to have joined the education development team in 2023 after many years of supporting faculty through the Instructional Skills Workshop, Great Teacher’s Seminar, and Facilitating Learning Online courses.

Outside of my work, my focus is on family, friends, fitness, and food- not always in that order.
