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.
