Hello! I'm Andrea Robin, a Learning Specialist, Facilitator, and Educator with a passion for implementing evidence-driven integrated learning programs aimed at promoting better brain health and fostering innovative organizational development.
I believe that learning and education play a crucial role not only in acquiring knowledge and skills, but also in improving cognitive functions, promoting mental agility, and enhancing overall brain health.
With over 16 years of experience in learning, I create innovative programs for individual and organizational development. My expertise has led me to collaborate on projects with Universities, NPOs, and Governments in Canada, the UK, France, and the US.
In my career, I've contributed to various initiatives, such as designing learning programs for TRIUMF, facilitating grant-funded Work Learn programs at UBC, and supporting STEAM education with Science World. I've also provided personalized instruction at Emily Carr University in art and technology programs. These diverse experiences have shaped my understanding of integrated learning and its power to enhance educational outcomes.
But my journey doesn't stop there. I'm a dedicated learner, always striving to improve my knowledge and skills. My focus is on continued education in neuroarts and creative health. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Art from Emily Carr University, examining societal interpretations of culture. Additionally, I pursued two years of Neuroscience studies at Dalhousie University, investigating the impact of integrated learning on health. I also draw insights from certificates in UX Design and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, among others.
Integrated Learning Labs is more than just a website; it's a platform for sharing, learning, and growing. It's a space where I not only recount my experiences and offer resources but also delve into the science and research that underpins them. Because at the heart of it all, I believe in the transformative power of learning – the ability to look at a problem, explore it from different angles, and derive solutions that make a real difference.
I invite you to join me on this journey of discovery and learning. Let's explore the fascinating world of phenomena together.
Welcome to Integrated Learning Labs!
