About Alana

I have worked a long time in post-secondary education and all of it has taken place at Sir Sandford Fleming College. My role for the past 20 years has primarily been part of course and program design teams to develop blended/online learning opportunities for full and part-time learners as a learning technology specialist (the postion has evolved over the years from web production technologist, elearning technologist to learning technology specialist).

I facilitate workshops, informal learning sessions, and try and find the answer to any question that is directed my way – I like questions.

My professional passions include: personalized professional learning, design thinking, connected learning, open learning, open education practices, and continually learning…

I am connected to my communities and am continually expanding it to include those that push my thinking. My community is where I go to seek my inspiration.

I have recently completed my Bachelor’s of Adult Education at the University of Brock. This degree completion was a goal set for myself many years ago. I am about to embark on my next learning journey and am starting my Masters of Inclusive Design at OCAD University in August 2017.

I’m also a very proud mother. My children are my barometer and the means by which I measure my balance.
