Manager - Instructional Technology Unit at the University of New Brunswick
I am currently actively involved in Faculty and staff professional development for all areas of instructional technology applications. For the previous eight years I coordinated and directed distance education activities.
In a previous position I was the Manager of Instructional Technology and Media for the province of Alberta. There, I was researching and working with the latest technological advances in Education. These include computer technologies, visual technologies, and audio technologies. My unit and I served to coordinate the development of various instructional technologies for distance learning for schools in the province of Alberta. Included was the development of six CD-ROMs. Each contained 125 hours of interactive mathematics instruction.
My unit and I were presented with the Association for Media and Technology in Education, Canada (AMTEC) Award of Merit, in June, 1991 for Freddie Factor - Category VIDEO, presented at Hull, PQ.
