How a real world carpentry program is demonstrating true “hands-on” learning to be authentic, meaningful and transdisciplinary.

I have been teaching for 15 years including 2 years in England and the remainder in West Vancouver and Vancouver. I am also a Red Seal Carpenter and this is one of the experiences that brought me to teaching and especially the variety of shop courses that I am passionate about. My Master of Arts research was focused on dual-credit programs offered to students in high school and now I am teaching using my passion, experience and skill set with a broad range of students who share an interest, motivation and satisfaction in learning through and with our hands.
