Welcome to my eportfolio!
My name is Paula M. van Wyk. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor.
I began my Tenure Track position in July of 2017, and I have enjoyed every minute.
Through this portfolio I hope to share with you more of who I am with respect to my teaching. However, since I believe my teaching and research are often interconnected, I have also created a tab “exploration” for you to gain an overview of my research initiatives.
In essence, both my teaching and research, as well as my community involvement, are all about ENABLE. Regardless of who you are, where you are, what abilities you possess, I want to find ways to ensure that you are enabled to participate, experience, and learn.
This is also way I have laid out each of my tabs, they spell out ENABLE: Enchantè (welcome), Nuance (teaching philosophy), Arrangement (teaching development), Broadenings (professional development and advancement), Living Documents (e.g. teaching dossier), Exploration (research).
Thank you for visiting, happy exploring, keep enabling, and please feel free to contact me via the information found on the contact tab.
