LinkedIn Learning and recently published a casebook to showcase a variety of teaching and learning experiences with LinkedIn Learning video-based courses.

About the authors

Kosloski is a professor and program coordinator for the digital cinematography and post production programs. He has also taught in the film production program at Confederation College. Kosloski is a practising documentary filmmaker, cinematographer and media artist, and worked in the film industry for over a decade as a technician and editor.

After completing her B.A. and M.A. in English, Robinson began working as a postsecondary professor in 2008. Within a few years, she developed a fascination with online teaching and learning. She noticed that drop rates were much higher in online courses and students frequently struggled to stay on track. She wanted to know why, and what she could do to combat these challenges. After gaining her certification in Online Design and Development, she became an instructional designer for Humber College and subsequently Canadore College. For the past five years, Robinson has thrived in this role, invigorated by the constant stream of technological innovations that can be creatively leveraged to address the challenges, and exploit the strengths, of online instruction and learning. To date, she has worked on over 80 online course builds at Humber College and Canadore College in a wide variety of disciplines. Amanda also continues to teach online part-time, as she feels teaching helps her to be a better designer.

Rouse Barbeau has been a program coordinator and professor in the advertising and marketing communications (ACM) program at Canadore College since 2006. The two-year program builds business, creative writing, and design skills. In her private life, Rouse Barbeau is a published author and illustrator, and a small imprint publisher of what she calls “artisan” books — unique, well-crafted stories with individualized print runs. She holds a Master of Education from the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) and a fellowship degree from the Ontario College of Art and Design (formerly OCA, now OCADU).
