Katherine Lithgow is the Senior Instructional Developer, Integrative Learning for the Centre for Teaching Excellence at the University of Waterloo. She is particularly interested in how to best help students connect what they learn in the classroom to the workplace, community, and social environments, and how students can transfer knowledge, skills, and values across contexts.
She coordinates the Integrative and Experiential Education series, a series devoted to strategies for fostering experiential learning, and the Waterloo High Impact Practices Group, a collective of Waterloo faculty and staff who support the use of High Impact Practices in teaching and learning, and meet a few times a year to share their successes, challenges and tips for High Impact teaching and learning. She has worked on a number of Learning Innovation and Teaching Enhancement (LITE) funded grant projects. Her most recent LITE grant projects include ePortfolios for Career, Reflection and Competency Integration and Bridging the Articulation of Skills Gap through WatCV: Career and Competency ePortfolios.
