I’m Mary Burgess and I live on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia, Canada. I work at BCcampus where I get to interact with all kinds of interesting people who inspire me to think big. I’ve been working in post-secondary-education for almost 2 decades and have seen a lot of shifts in that time. The purpose of this blog is to take a look at changes as they happen, to provide some food for thought, and to work through my own thinking on the myriad of issues facing those of us in the post-secondary-sector. I’m a passionate advocate of Open Education, effective, student-centred learning design, and educational technology that supports learning.
I’m a fan of authenticity and am happiest when I can connect with people in ways that enable me to know them better. I believe this makes it easier to be compassionate, and I’m always to striving to improve that part of my practice.
