MET Graduate Profile: Jennifer Long, MET 2014

Jennifer Long graduated from UBC’s Master of Educational Technology (MET) program in 2014. Then she brought her passion for teaching all the way to Antarctica.

Faculty Profile: Leah Macfadyen, PhD

“Originally trained in the experimental sciences, I fell into the world of eLearning in 2002, and never looked back. I’m excited that I can bring my hybrid academic background and skillset to the MET program. My early eLearning research (mostly qualitative) drew on my interest in theories of culture and intercultural communication, and was motivated by the reality of our increasingly diverse learner audience.”

Dr. Macfadyen is the Associate Director and Instructor in the MET Program and Assistant Professor of Teaching in the Department of Language and Literacy Education.
