Curriculum and Instructional Design Specialist Erin Howard
I am a Curriculum and Instructional Design Specialist, currently working in a Masters in Education Technology. I am new to Instructional Design but really enjoying learning all that there is to this job. It’s exciting when you see a course really come together from the creative ideas and expertise of just a few people. When I’m not at work, I love to get out and be active with my family, friends, or dogs and enjoy running, kickboxing, hiking, weight training, yoga and dance!

Curriculum and Instructional Design Specialist Christie Robertson
I remember what it was like being a new instructor: too many questions and too many resources to sift through. My goal as a writer for Learning Connections is to help instructors with common teaching issues, whether they are f-2-f, blended or online. I want answers to those frequently asked question to be easy to find!

Curriculum and Instructional Design Specialist Julie Deimert
New to the EET team, I bring a strong interest in all things ‘design’! In my work, this includes universal design for learning, online course design, and the design of engaging face-to-face learning experiences for both students and staff. Lately, I’ve been intrigued with the growing trend toward ‘human-centered’ design and am curious to see how we can adapt this solutions-focussed movement to inform learning design in post-secondary education. In my personal life, I’m completely obsessed with home design, especially the trend toward smaller shared spaces. In 2016, I was thrilled to have my small (872 square foot) Lethbridge home featured on NYC’s ‘Apartment Therapy’ blog!

Professional Development Consultant Trudi Mason
My role as Professional Development Consultant allows me to share my passion for teaching and people with everyone at the College.  As a former post-secondary educator with twenty plus years of experience I have a good feel for the classroom and teaching. I love making new discoveries to enhance teaching and learning at all levels.  I’m a professional musician by trade and I share my love for music across our community and the province.  Since we live in a beautiful part of the world, much of my spare time is spent running, biking, swimming and hiking in our incredible coulees and mountains with my family of boys.

EET Staff
Over the years we have compiled articles from different members of the EET team. Sometimes they were written collaboratively and other times the staff author wasn’t written down. These articles were too good not to share, so we’ve labeled them as EET Staff.
