Research Information:

I run a research laboratory in Flexible Delivery and Transformative Pedagogies on various aspects of innovative teaching and learning strategies including emerging technologies such as simulators, avatars, artificial intelligence, digital storytelling and mobile learning. This “team” collaborates with her developing creative, practical, efficient methods to address everyday educational problems.

I designed and published three learning models (the Partnership Model, 1998; The Demand Driven Learning Model (DDLM), 2001; and the W(e)Learn Framework, 2009). A few of my recent projects in professional development and training include (a) developing, delivering and evaluating the worlds first online physician wellness program (b) an online workplace health program for health providers; and (c) a face-to-face program for healthcare teams across Ontario. Two promotional articles written about these project can be seen at here and here.
