Do you work in a role where you’re training, sharing information or teaching? Curious about RRU's learning and technology programs? Wondering what it means to study online during the pandemic?

The Master of Arts in Learning and Technology (MALAT) has been designed to address the need for qualified professionals in the field of technology-mediated learning and education – a need that has been enhanced due to the impact of COVID-19. Now more than ever, learning extends far beyond the walls of a classroom or an office.

Join current MALAT students on September 30th to learn about their first-hand experience being a part of the MALAT program during this pandemic and how the program has supported their development of a digital mindset in these extraordinary times. Our students will share what surprised them, what challenged them and what inspired them throughout their MALAT journey and provide tips and tricks for those considering the program in the near future. 

Our students:

  • Brandon Carson is a 2nd year Master of Arts in Learning and Technology student who has worked in higher education for 12 years. Brandon is currently a Learning Technologies Specialist and part-time professor at Durham College, and a member of the Ontario Tech University Educational Informatics Lab. Brandon recently completed a 14-month secondment at eCampusOntario, where he led Open Educational Resources (OER) and Adaptive Learning projects at a provincial level.
  • Christy Boyce worked as a critical care Respiratory Therapist for 16 years, with 4 years as an instructor in healthcare simulation training. After shifting into community care and teaching patients how to manage their chronic illnesses, she recognized a desire to engage in graduate studies and joined the MALAT Program. Six months later, Christy joined the Virtual Health team at Fraser Health, first, as a clinical Project Lead, and now as their new Virtual Health learning consultant.
  • Chad Flinn has worked in vocational education for the past 11 years.  With a passion for student success and open education Chad strives to bring open pedagogy to trades based education. Chad is currently the BCIT open education Fellow and is completing a fellowship with BCcampus. The MALAT program has been life changing and transformational for Chad that has lead to many opportunities and experiences.
