From June 2017 to May 2018, I was lead organizer of a one-day symposium on the role of e-portfolios in higher education. "Capture, Integrate, Reflect and Connect to Learning ePortfolios" (CIRCLe 2018) was hosted by the UBC Faculty of Arts and the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) and took place during UBC's 10th annual Celebrate Learning Week.
An art and design course I developed and taught that spans both studio and theory. The course contextualizes new media practice within the history of contemporary art, emerging technology and digital culture.
In 2016-2017 I was contracted to conduct research into the nature and scope of research activity at the British Columbia Institute of Technolog (BCIT). This research consisted of interviews, surveys, data analysis and writing an executive report summary.

An experimental video that attempts to capture the perceptual processes that occur within multimedia and multitasking. This piece explores our relationship with Facebook in a way that draws attention to remediation in current digital culture.
A document of dialogue and reflection from a resistant self who enters the networked space of Facebook. I use myself as a research subject to explore the self’s relationship to social networks. Selfpost is the outing of the artist’s self to one's many social networks within Facebook; Postself is the documentation of this experience on a blog that serves as a place to explore questions about the make-up of selves after Facebook.
In September 2015, I participated in a week-long intensive residency on digital media concepts for art education at Museum Schloss Moyland in Bedburg-Hau, Germany. I was one of 30 participants chosen from 300 applicants. Participants from Germany, Russia, Switzerland, Poland, Scotland, Serbia, Bosnia, Georgia, Lithuania, and Turkey.
An interactive social practice art and exhibition project I created with fellow artists Lois Klassen, Elisa Yon, and Adam Stenhouse. The project existed as a 10-day school-within-a-school at Emily Carr University of Art & Design in December, 2011 and online at http://qruopenschool.ca/. Participants were presented with a series of questions about their relationships with art, learning and technology.
In this article co-written with Jody Baker, we argue for the integration of open source culture and current remix practices into art and media curriculum. We reflect upon previous online teaching experiences as we develop a pedagogical approach for a course examining remix culture.
This article in the International Journal of Education through Art discusses an artist-teacher residency staged at a university that examined relations between art, learning and teaching. It begins with a short discussion of the pedagogical turn in contemporary art and interventionist art practices before describing the artist-teacher residency. This residency was initiated to examine how teacher candidates come to understand pedagogy in their field.
