June - August, 2008
The CTL was delighted to have Nick Baker as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Windsor from June through August.
Nick Baker is a Lecturer in Higher Education for the Teaching and Educational Development Institute at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. He works on enhancing all aspects of the student experience at UQ, including transitional challenges, teaching and learning issues, and learning space design. In previous incarnations, he has been a journalist, instructional designer, manager of an educational resource development unit, and a lecturer in ecology – a discipline in which he still teaches and in which places and spaces for learning are critical determinants of the outcomes for graduates.

Nick's ecological background came in handy when a wayward bat found its way into a CTL office.
With his extensive Australian outback knowledge, Nick was able to subdue the beast and release it back into the wild.
