education and design
Consulting - Education - Artisan
I’m Christine Selinger - I am an Instructional Designer, Tutor, Public Speaker, and Artisan. I provide services on contract either in person in Calgary, Alberta or via virtual (i.e., online) methods.
I sustained a spinal cord injury at the age of 19, and have identified as a person with a disability since. I completed two Bachelor's degrees (Science & Education) concurrently while also competing for the Canadian National Team (and winning two consecutive World Championships) in the six years following my injury. I became an Instructional Designer in 2014 and have found purpose in providing reliable, unbiased sex education to adults with disabilities.
I love creating things, teaching, and learning. Being an Instructional Designer has allowed me to combine these passions into a profession that I love. I am also dedicated to teaching through tutoring and speaking engagements and I relish in the opportunity to speak openly with others about my experiences as a designer, athlete and person with a disability.
Look around and please contact me with any questions or comments, or if you're interested in any of my services!!
Creativity. Strategy. Ingenuity.
I have three years experience as an Instructional Designer with a non-for-profit in Toronto, Canada and I now work, on contract, for clients across the globe.
My work has been focussed on creating educational products for adults with disabilities and general workplace training including such topics as safety training, software training, and privacy.
I have primarily worked with Adobe Connect and Captivate, though I have also worked extensively with Camtasia Studio to create, edit, and produce video content. I use the ADDIE process (though rarely linearly) to design products that fit my consumer's needs.
I speak about determination, drive, and the challenge to overcome as it relates to my experience as a person with a disability and an athlete.
I sustained a spinal cord injury in December of 2006, and became involved in the world of sports shortly thereafter. Through my 4 year tenure with the Canadian National ParaCanoe Team, I won two consecutive World Championships (as well as other International Medals) in Women's Sprint Canoe, as well as several World Silver Medals in Women's Kayak.
I have also spent extensive time speaking on the topic of sexuality and disability.
I love to design both using technology and with my hands. I sell handmade creative products online. These items are sewn, stitched, sculpted, drawn, and/or painted solely by myself.
I tutor Mathematics, English, & Science from ages 2 through 20, providing homework help or instruction either in-person or online via virtual platforms. I have a decade of experience in helping students to achieve success through coaching and counselling. My patience, exactness, and openness allows my students to freely discuss their challenges so that we may overcome them together.
