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.
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).
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.
