Wendy Kraglund-Gauthier, PhD

Manager, Networks and Ongoing Learning

Wendy joined the Coady as Manager, Networks and Ongoing Learning in August 2015, bringing over 20 years experience in applying technological applications and evaluative processes in face-to-face and online education spaces.  She also brings experience working with adults who wish to develop and strengthen personal capacities and practices within themselves, their organizations, and their communities.

Prior to joining the Coady, Wendy worked as an Instructional Designer for St. Francis Xavier University’s Continuing & Distance Education department, where she was responsible for supporting faculty who were bringing their courses to an online medium. Her research passion is centered on the pedagogical aspects of online learning and on establishing and maintaining communities of practice that support professional learning and strengthen self-efficacy, while accounting for individuals’ technological abilities and access to devices.

Wendy holds a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Education, and a Master of Adult Education degree from St. Francis Xavier University. Her PhD in Education is from the University of South Australia, and in her spare time, she is working towards a Bachelor of Business Administration, Leadership & Management from StFX, where her thesis research focused on alumni networks and mentorship.
