About Me

My name is Kim Carter and I am a Professor in The Business School at Conestoga College ITAL in Kitchener, Ontario Canada. Prior to teaching, I worked in a variety of front-line health office administration roles in hospitals while running a small business with my partner. I am passionate about teaching, learning and aspire to become an effective advocate for open educational pedagogy (OEP).

Influenced by education leaders like bell hooks and Stephen Brookfield caring for students through their education journey is at the core of my practice. While new to OPEN education, it has become a passion to pursue and led to the collaboration project and recent publishing of  Building a Medical Terminology Foundation.

About Me

My name is Kim Carter and I am a Professor at Conestoga College in Southern Ontario, Canada. I am a first generation student from a working-class family. I returned to school as an older adult and began my teaching career. My teaching has always been influenced by education leaders such as bell hooks and Stephen Brookfield but it wasn’t until I completed the eCampus Ontario Extend Empowered Educator program that I found OPEN and now aspire to become an effective advocate for Open Education Practices (OEP).

In August 2020, I led and worked with a wonderful team of cross institutional collaborators (including students) to publish an Open Education Resource (OER) Building a Medical Terminology Foundation. What a wonderful collaboration it turned out to be and timely as the resource and many of the accompanying H5P interactives turned out be so helpful for students in remote learning.

I started a blog when I participated in eCampus Ontario Extend mOOC. Read those reflections here. I use blogging as a form of reflective practice for my own teaching, my own learning, and now as I explore the open educational pedagogy (OEP) space. I hope you find something helpful in my reflections.
