AM bio pic

Dr. AnneMarie Dorland is an Assistant Professor in the Bissett School of Business at Mount Royal University, an innovation focused university that offers a different kind of business education to students who want to make a change in our world. In her teaching and research she brings together her background as a graphic designer, brand strategist and qualitative researcher to develop innovative, creative and design-oriented learning experiences. Her research explores creativity and creative problem solving practices such as designed approaches to thinking, and her scholarship is focused on the use of deliberate practice, failure and iteration to convert insight to action in partnership with community and industry changemakers. Dorland is a contributor to several international publications on how we might design our thinking, and she is relentlessly optimistic about the ways that the practices of the design studio can help us create meaningful and innovative change – by design.

Dorland is a professional member of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL), the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), Ethnographic Praxis in Industry (EPIC), the Service Design Network (SDN), the Canadian Communication Association (ACC-CCA), the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA), the Canadian Marketing Association (CMA), Registered Graphic Designers (RGD), Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC) and the Design Management Institute (DMI).
