My name is Kieran: Click below to hear me say my name.
I was taken by the passage in David Brooks’ The Road to Character that introduced the differences between résumé virtues and eulogy virtues. My résumé virtues are below in the “KF-Resume” file. This is really just a list of places I have been and largely reflects how I was engaged in making a living while in those places.
The résumé doesn’t really tell you much about who I am; for that, you’ll want the other link – the narrative. However, that’ll cost you slightly more than a click. Just send me an email with the subject line “About – narrative“, and I’ll send you on a wee story (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Old, long blurb: Kieran Forde is a PhD candidate in the Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy at the University of British Columbia. His PhD research explores how technological advances in the networked age have enabled information to be transmitted at extraordinarily high speeds which, in turn, has obliterated essential human sensibilities that previously acted as important guardrails for reasoned and reasonable communication between people. His research interests also include teacher professionalism, online reputation, and the right to be forgotten. At UBC, Kieran works as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Faculty of Education, a Graduate Facilitator at the Centre for Teaching Learning, and Technology (CTLT), and served as one of the two Provost Office Fellows in Online Learning at the Office of the Provost & Vice-President Academic.
