To help self-reflection as well as departmental review, I maintain an online curriculum vitae (CV) detailing my teaching practice. The available CV editions:

An abbreviated CV

This is the January 2017 to January 2019 curriculum vitae of Andrew Hawryshkewich, focusing on work completed at the School of Interactive Arts & Technology (SIAT), which is part of Simon Fraser University (SFU). This document was last updated in January 2019.

Introduction

This abbreviated CV focuses on continuing and new contributions since the last major document was generated (in 2017). Some content has been carried over to assist in providing an coherent overview.

New contributions

Notable contributions that happened between 2017-2019.

CELLTR-ISTLD Seminar Series and Grant Program (Ongoing since 2018)

Goal: To build a 'better' project outline — one more understandable by a broader range of language proficiencies.

One of five SFU faculty members selected for the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research (CELLTR) "Inquiring into Your Multilingual Classroom: An Integrated Seminar Series and Grants Program."

As part of the program I have attended a series of seminars and am developing a grant application to complete research around the development of better project outlines for students. Given my sabbatical in 2019, results of this research will likely be available in 2020.

SIAT Content Guide (2017-2018)

Goal: To help guide the reworking of content for the SIAT website.

As the chair of the Communications Committee, I led the committee as well as students, staff and faculty through various exercises to help develop and inform a content strategy/guide for SIAT.

The completed document is available at siats.ca/contentguide

SIAT Website Overhaul (2017-2018)

Goal: To restructure and rewrite the SIAT website to better serve our audiences.

As the chair of the Communications Committee, I led the committee as well as students, staff and faculty through various exercises to help restructure and rewrite the SIAT website.

As of January 2019 the site is live at www.sfu.ca/siat

Courses & evaluations

A summary of courses taught and evaluations. These help illustrate the caliber of my teaching and course design in comparison with my peers across FCAT. Complete teaching evaluations for a given course are linked within the table.

The evaluation values below use two categories from the Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (started in 2015): (a) "Overall, the quality of instruction provided by the instructor in the course was..." is listed under Instructor and (b) "Overall, the quality of my learning experience in the course was..." is available uner 'Course' in the table below. Averages are from within the faculty as departmental averages are no longer available.

Service

Service contributions, both within and outside the SFU community.

Communications committee (2014-2018)

I have sat on the Communications committe for SIAT since 2014. In September 2017 I became the committee chair. Since starting as chair I led the committee through the following:

  • Proposing and rolling out standardized email addresses for the department.
  • With direction from fellow faculty and staff, developing a content guide to build better and more consistent website content.
  • Restructuring and rewriting the department website to better serve our audiences. Live at www.sfu.ca/siat as of January 2019.

Sketching in Practice Symposium (2017-2018)

I have helped the lead organizers — Susan Clements-Vivian and Jason Toal — organize and facilitate the symposium in 2017 and 2018.

Tenure & promotion committe (2017-2018)

Member of the committee reviewing tenure and promotion cases for 2018.

Teaching assistant training (2017)

In collaboration with Paul Brokenshire and Sarah Louise Turner, ran the SIAT teaching assistant training workshop in September 2017. The original workshop was developed with Chantal Gibson.

For my own teaching assistants, I also maintain my own introduction to help orient them.

Access Makeathon (Feb 2017)

In collaboration with the Neil Squire Society, I applied for and received SFU Community Engagement Funding to put on the Access Makeathon: A 48 hour event that connected a person with a disability to a team of makers. I was part of the core team organizing the event.

Makers at the event proposed solutions to challenges that the individual faced on a daily basis.

Professional development

Conferences and workshops attended to help improve my teaching practice.

CELLTR-ISTLD Seminar Series and Grant Program (Oct - Nov 2018)

One of five SFU faculty members selected for the Centre for English Language Learning, Teaching and Research (CELLTR) "Inquiring into Your Multilingual Classroom: An Integrated Seminar Series and Grants Program."

As part of the program I have attended a series of seminars focused on the challenges multilingual learners face in the classroom. This not only helps inform my focus for the grant — on better project outlines — but also how I can better deliver content to support a variety of linguistic abilities.

Game UX Summit (Sept 2018)

Attended a number of the talks at the 2018 Game UX Summit hosted by EA in Vancouver to help explore another angle of user experience design which our students may be exploring.

Field Research Masterclass (Nov 2017)

A one-day workshop of running international field research projects. Useful to help inform my teaching practice for current industry standards, as well as different approaches to design research.

To Be Designed — online conference (Apr 2017)

Online, one-day conference with presentations by Cennydd Bowles, Carla Diana, Giles Colborne, John Maeda, Mike Kuniavsky, Liza Kindred and Chris Noessel focusing on the 'near future' of design. A useful series of talks to keep up with how the discipline of design is evolving and changing.
