“By learning you will teach, by teaching you will learn”
I am both a teacher and student but I don’t see much difference between those two roles. As the Latin proverb above states, learning and teaching are inextricably linked together.
I have been a professor at Durham College for ten years, after working in news television for over a decade. I have taught a variety of media-related courses including broadcast journalism, online journalism, social media, magazine writing, magazine publishing and photography. I love my job and I’m always looking for ways to enhance my students’ learning by using new technology in and outside of the classroom.
I completed a Master’s degree in Education with a specialization in Digital Technologies at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. For my Master’s research project, I researched the impact of digital technology on adult literacy. To read my research project on adult literacy and technology click here.
I am currently a PhD candidate in the Education – Language, Culture and Teaching program at York University. My dissertation is investigating street art’s potential to create ‘pop ups’ of informal, public spaces of learning, online and offline, while considering its pedagogical significance as a feminist literacy practice.
