Dr. Louise Edwards is an educational consultant and VR developer situated at the nexus of competency-based educational design and immersive technology. She has carved a unique career path that encompasses experimental research in Earth science, environmental consulting, education and training across K-12, post-secondary and corporate sectors, and VR design and development.
Prior to starting her own consulting business in 2022, Louise was a competency-based education and assessment consultant at an innovative community college in western Canada where she worked with stakeholders across industry, education and the community to create authentic, skills-based courses and micro-credentials designed to quickly respond to labour-market challenges and address skills gaps.
