While I regard myself as a nurse researcher, I also have long had an interest in teaching and facilitating learning. Overall, I find teaching to be a rewarding and enriching experience. I have often been told that students appreciate my warmth, approachability, and my investment in supporting their learning. Over the years I have been able to work as a clinical nurse educator, clinical instructor, teaching assistant, course leader and sessional lecturer. My approach to teaching is guided by adult-learning principles, recognizing that adult learners are goal-oriented and bring their own life experiences to learning opportunities. My own goal as a teacher and facilitator of learning is to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment for learners. I have found that effectively communicating and engaging with learners has always been key to positive learning experiences, as well as being able to respect and adapt to a wide range of diverse learning styles. I am experienced as developing curricula, and currently am a sessional instructor at Athabasca University and the University of British Columbia.
