Manager, Learning Technologies

D’Arcy leads the Learning Technologies group in finding and developing technology platforms that enhance student learning, and in collaborating with instructors and faculty leadership to adopt and support new learning technologies.

He has spent the bulk of his career at the University of Calgary. He started as a web and multimedia developer, building the first online courses in the Faculty of Nursing, before moving into the role of education technology consultant at the Teaching and Learning Centre, and then IT partner. He holds bachelor’s degrees in zoology and education, and completed his master’s in educational technology in 2013.
