Lorraine Mockford

Lorraine Storry Mockford is an instructional designer with the Nova Scotia Community College, working with faculty across three academic Schools to offer courses and programs using flexible and accessible delivery methods. She is also one of the lead facilitators for the Flexible Learning courses which prepare faculty and staff to design, develop, and facilitate online and blended delivery courses.

Lorraine has been with the NSCC for 23 years, starting as a Human Services and Early Childhood Studies faculty member. Her interest in teaching and learning with technology made the move to Online Learning a logical step. She continues to expand those horizons through community involvement with virtual conferences, including the organizing committee of the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education annual conference (since 2007). Lorraine became involved with the Virtual International Day of the Midwife 4 years ago, answering a social media call for session facilitators and speaker support.

Lorraine’s personal interests include open educational resources, social media in education, virtual world applications, and disability supports. She has been a Great Teachers Seminar facilitator for more than 10 years. Her personal interests overlap with these, but also include Middle Eastern percussion and dance.
