An E-learning Portfolio
This e-learning portfolio is a selection of artifacts and reflections about educational technology and innovation, as practiced by Gary Bartanus, MET.
Gary holds a Master of Educational Technology degree from The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He is an alumnus of UBC’s Faculty of Education and this world-renowned university is currently ranked as #1 in Canada and #9 in the world for its leading role in research and practice in the field of Education.
With a strong emphasis on current research and learning theories, Gary’s background includes a comprehensive and extensive body of work that demonstrates how he applies modern learning theories and uses various relevant technologies to improve and enhance traditional instructional design practices in both the classroom and online.
As the artifacts and reflections in this portfolio demonstrate, Gary has the experience and training to provide learners with the support they need as they get themselves ever increasingly involved in that natural partnership between their own learning processes and the various technologies that surround them.
