I have been instructing part-time since September 2015 and teaching part-time since September 2017 at George Brown College.
Digital Technology: Violence and Justice Issues
The course captures the violence and justice issues resulting from the rapid advancement and evolution of modern technology and examines the role of digital technology in social justice, activism and advocacy, and the social, economic, and political issues related to systemic oppression. I designed and developed the full curriculum for this course.
Field Work Seminar/Practice I
Field Work Seminar I provides a supportive environment so that students may integrate their academic studies with field work practice. Field Work Practice I is students' first opportunity to apply their academic studies to field practice. Using their Learning Contract as guide for placement goals and objectives, students complete 250 hours of supervised field experience.
Trades and Career Planning (TCP)
TCP prepares participants for their next steps such as post-secondary certification, pre-apprenticeship, and other training programs. The topics and activities included in the TCP will give participants the exposure they need to make decisions about the field/trade they will prepare to enter. I designed and developed the full curriculum for this course.
