Me and Dodger

I love geography, teaching, and technology, and have been lucky enough to work at a wonderful university that lets me combine all three. When I’m not working, I love nothing more than spending time with my family, and finding time for travel, and dabbling in photography, gardening, golfing, and camping.

I was interviewed by Daniel O’Donohue for the MapScaping Podcast, where we talked about GIS education with a focus on current trends, advice for those just getting into the field, and how GIS can be taught online. You can listen below or through your favourite podcast app!

I have taught courses in online, hybrid, and in-person formats. I believe in the power of educational technology to increase learning access, equity, efficiency, and effectiveness.
