Kwey (hello) and welcome to my introduction blog post for EC&I 834!
My name is Chantal Stenger and I am of mixed descent, part European and part Wolastoqey First Nations from Bilijk (Kingsclear) First Nations. I am a graduate student at the University of Regina taking the Masters of Indigenous Education program. In my professional career, I am the Academic Initiatives Coordinator for Strategic Initiatives at Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT). I oversee the Go Where Eagles Dare (GWED) outbound mobility program and engage in internal and external initiatives taken by the institution.
In my professional career, I have had the opportunity to create, develop, maintain, and review asynchronous and synchronous online courses and blended learning courses. Previously, when I was a Secondary teacher and Post-Secondary instructor, I created synchronous and blended learning courses for students in my classes. In my current position, I assisted in the revision of the outbound mobility program by creating a new program that included the development of new courses, syllabi, learning outcomes, and assessments with the implementation of the courses on the current Learning Management System (LMS), Brightspace. By taking this course, I hope to further my knowledge about course development and apply new techniques and skills to my current job.
If you are interested in keeping up with me and my professional career, you can connect with me on LinkedIn.

I am very interested in learning more about your previous roles teaching in post-secondary, and your current role as an Academic Initiatives Coordinator. It is always so great to learn about the different roles educators have outside of the traditional classroom. I look forward to hearing more from you and what you share on your blog!
Hi Chantal, nice to have a class with you! Hope you are doing well.
Hi Chantal, ekosani for sharing. It sounds like you have a lot of experience with online and blended learning. I’d be interested in hearing about the types of courses you developed as a post-secondary instructor. I am currently a contract instructor for University College of the North. I was recently asked about my thoughts around assessment and Indigenization to which I shared a story from a book by Alice Masak French, My Name is Masak. Perhaps we can chat about your thoughts on assessment and Indigenization one day soon. Take care.
Wow. I am very impressed to see your in-depth knowledge and experiences with blended learning. From my experience, being a teacher or a trainer, it’s not easy to create lesson plans, and syllabi. I am very interested to know your techniques regarding this. Hope, you will share this in further classes.
