Professional Development Committee Chair
I am quite new to MacEwan but in the past year I have been enjoying my time here and learning a lot from my colleagues. I have always been a person actively looking for learning opportunities and hoping to integrate what I learn into my work. I have had the chance to take MSA in-service learning courses to enhance my project management skills, participate in workshops offered by technology support to better manipulate datasets and use the access to learning opportunities fund to obtain leadership skills. I believe access to professional development is essential in employees’ professional path for them to grow, be more competent and achieve excellence.
While I value in-person learning highly and believe it is essential to have learning in a physical interaction because it sparks creativity and great learning outcomes, I am also fascinated by technology and virtual learning. I am always willing to try new things and am interested in seeing how post-pandemic learning will change and whether creative teaching methods can be used to make professional development opportunities accessible and beneficial to wider audiences.
I value professional development highly and hope to provide fresh eyes and learning along the way in order to provide MSA members with useful professional development opportunities.
