Hello, I'm Gary Bartanus and I am currently undergoing my orientation as an instructional designer at Royal Roads University.
My approach to learning and teaching involves the integration of emerging technologies with socio-constructivist principles and current research-based learning theory. I am avidly interested in educational endeavors such as facilitating transformative learning, enabling students to become primary influencers in their chosen fields, keeping abreast with current research and future trends in education, assessing technologies, and collaborating with other higher education professionals.
Prior to joining Royal Roads, I held a multifaceted role at Hanyang University in South Korea, where I taught undergraduate students and developed blended courses in digital literacy, presentation skills and business communication for EFL learners. I have also served the educational community in Canada as a literacy and special education consultant where I conducted ongoing hands-on research into emerging technologies, delivered interactive presentations, and facilitated workshops at institutions and conferences across Canada.
I am very much looking forward to the next five weeks of working and learning together.
