Pamela joined the CSSIC in 2018. Since then, she has led projects on essential skills articulation, translation, and assessment as part of HEQCO’s Learning Outcomes Assessment Consortium, as principal investigator of the SSHRC-funded Future Ready Skills Translator research project, and as co-investigator of Material Handling 4.0, one of the 10 innovation projects funded by the Future Skills Centre.
