Melanie Latham

Coordinator, Educational Technologies
Melanie enjoys helping faculty navigate the intersection between educational technologies and instructional design. Her passions include online course design, cognitive learning science, and instructional materials design. Outside of work, you will find her crafting something, hiking the trails in and around Kamloops, on a ski hill, or spending time with family.

Brad Forsyth

Learning Technologist
Brad still occasionally feels like he is trying to figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. He is interested in digital game-based learning, learning and assessments in VR spaces, open educational practices, promoting climate literacy, frameworks surrounding the selection and application of learning technologies, and finding new ways to facilitate interaction and authentic assessments in digital spaces. Outside of the office you can usually find him enjoying his downtime with a good book in hand, or out enjoying the many hiking trails surrounding Kamloops, on the golf course, or falling gracefully down a ski hill.

Jon Fulton

Video Producer
Jon is a video producer for Thompson Rivers University, Open Learning. He creates pedagogically-driven media pieces for distance courses. His business card should read “Image Acquisition and Manipulation,” although he also has extensive experience in audio manipulation, once creating a three-minute sound composition based entirely from a single puff of his asthma inhaler.
