I mainly teach in two different courses for the Master of Educational Technology, Faculty of Education, UBC.
- ETEC 500 Research Methodology in Education
- ETEC 512 Applications of Learning Theories to the Analysis of Instructional Settings (Co-author the major revision with Dr. Jennifer Shapka)
I always strive to make my teaching scholarly by basing it upon practice from notable literature on teaching and learning. I am particularly interested in the topic of feedback, assessment, and instructional strategies for facilitating and fostering student learning through discussion forums. Some of the questions I strive to find answers for are: what sort of instructor feedback tends to be more effective; how to ensure that the feedback is actually incorporated into students’ later work; what the effects of self- and peer assessment are on learning; and how to help students personalize their learning experiences.
