Program Development

Proposal Writer for Course Based Masters in Educational Psychology and Special Education, University of Saskatchewan (2008-2009)

As Department Head wrote proposal and undertook leadership role for the development and implementation of the Course Based Masters in Educational Psychology and Special Education, approved by the College of Graduate Studies, the Academic Programs Committee, and University Council effective June 2009. The Course Based Masters in Educational Psychology and Special Education is a 30-credit unit program that offers students advanced competencies in two streams, special education and measurement and evaluation. Students who have completed the Post Degree Certificate in Special Education would be granted advanced standing in the Course Based Masters. A successful application for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) development funding was submitted concurrently and granted in June 2009 (Phase 1) and 2010 (Phase 2). TEL funding enabled the development of the Course Based Masters for online delivery. The direct measurable outcomes were found in increased enrolment in the M. Ed. in Educational Psychology and Special Education due to enhanced accessibility of the programs to students who live in rural and/or remote areas or who are unable to maintain permanent residency at the University due familial or job constraints ( i.e. many of those enrolled in our EPSE graduate program are teachers).

Academic Project Leader for M.Ed. in Educational Psychology and Special Education Phase 2 Technology Enhanced Learning Development Team. (2010-2011)

As Academic Project Leader worked in conjunction with TEL development team which included TEL program manager, project coordinator, instructional designer, subject matter experts. Had oversight responsibilities for academic, instructional design, and production activities involved for the online development of the reaming three-3 credit unit graduate courses in Educational Psychology that comprised the course-based masters.

Academic Project Leader for M.Ed. in Educational Psychology and Special Education Phase 1 Technology Enhanced Learning Development Team. (2009-2010)

As Academic Project Leader worked in conjunction with TEL development team which included TEL program manager, project coordinator, instructional designer, subject matter experts). Had oversight responsibilities for academic, instructional design, and production activities involved for the online development of the initial four-3 credit unit graduate courses in Educational Psychology that comprised the course-based masters.

Principal Content Developer and Coordinator for Post Degree Certificate in Education: Special Education (2003-2007)

As the Coordinator and Principal Content Developer for the Post Degree Certificate in Education: Special Education between 2003-2007 I was responsible for the implementation of the 30 credit unit offering developed in response to Graduate review and stakeholders demands that special education teacher preparation become more accessible through online offerings. As Coordinator and Principal Content Developer I procured multi-year funding through the Government of Saskatchewan’s Technology Enhanced Learning fund for 2003-2004, 2004-2005, and 2005-2006 for the online development of the certificate.
