Allow me to introduce myself: I am Greg Chan from the Department of English at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, where I have taught academic writing and literature since 1995. Outside of the classroom, I am proud to serve as a board member and community outreach director for the KDocs Documentary Film Festival. I am also a member of KPU's Social Justice Centre.
More recently, I have taught ENGL 2350 and ENGL 4350, upper-level courses in film studies -- a field that has become not only the launchpad for my scholarly research, but also the central focus of my pedagogy. As a digital humanist in this interdisciplinary field, I have launched an open-access, peer-reviewed journal called Mise-en-scène: The Journal of Film and Visual Narration. As the journal's editor-in-chief, I run a corresponding internship program for KPU students.
Previous to Kwantlen, I was a sessional instructor in UBC's Department of English and a faculty associate at the Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (formerly the Centre for Teaching and Academic Growth). When I am not teaching in the academic world, I have taught business writing courses for UBC's Writing Centre and done customized training for a variety of clients: the Sauder School of Business, the BC Safety Authority, HSBC, CGA Canada, Knight Piesold, Hatfield Consultants, Sanford Housing Society, MHPM Project Managers, and BC Hydro.
