Ken's interest in building engaging, constructivist learning environments, and a desire to find new opportunities for student-centred learning brings him to Royal Roads as an instructional designer. Working in learning design and faculty development, Ken is eager to support active, constructivist learning. He aims to follow best practices for technology that enable rich collaboration and constructive environments. Most of all, he promotes the view that we are best able to learn through building relationships, not just with the material, but with each other.
Having moved to the world of higher education from a rich background in visual communications, Ken brings his experience of over 10 years in post-secondary teaching to his role as instructional designer. In his former role at BCIT, he was responsible for supporting and engaging students as an instructor, lab supervisor, and mentor, helping students succeed through active discovery and experiential learning. Ken is also an advocate for the use of open educational resources and open pedagogy.
