Anwen BurkLearning Technologies Support Specialist
I started my post-secondary education in Political Science, changed to Nursing and ended with a BA in English. My career has followed a similar pattern of “what do I want to do next?” After I completed my MLIS I worked as a Children’s and Youth Services Librarian before moving on to the world of academic libraries.
While I was working at Red Deer College I had the opportunity to refocus my interests and my new career as an Instructional Designer and Educational Technologist was born. I have since worked with a number of faculties at a few different institutions and continue to learn more about teaching and learning and how we can use technology to enhance both.
I have done some work in the Open Education arena and continue to do so, and my latest interest is in learning more about digital accessibility and what it means for course design. I have been with the Centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning since July 2018.
Teachers that can be replaced by a machine should be.

I never teach my pupils, I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.
