My Interest in ASCN: Lorne Whitehead

University of British Columbia
Physics and Astronomy

Prior Organizational Change Work

I initiated the Carl Wieman Science Education Innovation at UBC during the time I was Provost and VP Academic. This followed preliminary efforts directed toward education culture change during roles as Associate Dean and Acting Dean in Science.

How ASCN Can Contribute to my Work

I am the Program Director of the Bay View Alliance.
I also serve at UBC as the Special Advisor for Innovation and have been closely involved with the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative

How I Can Contribute to ASCN

I think my most helpful contributions may arise from my experiences in organizing the Bay View Alliance and perhaps more importantly in the exposure to many conversations about leading improvements of education that have arisen through interactions among key individuals at member campuses.
