I am the Director of the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation at Brock University. (Ontario, Canada) and an Instructional Skills Workshop facilitator and trainer. At the Centre, I oversee resources and programming that support and develop effective teaching practices in the university context, and I am particularly intrigued by the intersections of personal and professional practice with respect to mindfulness and contemplative teaching and learning. I am currently a co-chair of the ISW Advisory Committee, with a focus on the ways in which the network can support ISW communities internationally. I have taught in both Greece and China and have been involved with ISWs and FDWs in Namibia, Qatar, Taiwan and China.
