Welcome to my ePortfolio! This website is primarily intended to showcase the work that I do as a Reference and Instruction Librarian at Thompson Rivers University. My academic background is in Linguistics, and I have a professional interest in providing information literacy instruction to students for whom English is a second or additional language.
I’m also interested in using the principles of design to create materials that make learning easy and intuitive. Our students are required to learn a lot in a short time, and I strongly believe that creative, thoughtful and above all intentional design can make a big difference. This is particularly true for students who have additional challenges, such as learning disabilities or limited English language skills, but in the end good design makes life easier and better for everyone!
