Dr. Valerie Irvine, University of Victoria

Dr. Valerie Irvine is the undergraduate and graduate advisor in Educational Technology and co-director of the Technology Integration and Evaluation (TIE) Research Lab at the University of Victoria. She has been teaching online and open since 1998 at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Valerie developed the multi-access learning framework (2009, 2013) as a means for learners to personalize their modality. She teaches a cohort of teachers from across the Western provinces in both online-only and multi-access learning formats. She also teaches a blended core undergraduate teacher education course on technology and innovation in education. Valerie also has a measurement background and presents a critical lens of assessment that is evidence-based. She has received $1.4 million in funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund, the Government of Canada Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and is president of the new Congress association, the Open/Technology in Education, Society, and Scholarship Association (OTESSA). She is welcome to building connections and can be reached at virvine@uvic.ca or via Twitter at @_valeriei. Valerie acknowledges with respect the Lekwungen peoples on whose traditional territory the University of Victoria stands and where she works and lives, and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSáNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
