Irwin

Brian Lamb, Abject, Feb 01, 2024

I didn't know Irwin DeVries but our paths crossed over the years. "He was at the Open Learning Agency in the early eighties, and over the years he made immense contributions to the Justice Institute of BC, TRU Open Learning (retiring as our Associate Vice-President), Royal Roads University, and elsewhere." By all accounts he was a model and inspiration to the peoplehe worked with, and he played an important role in the development of open and online learning in Canada and beyond. This article is a heartfelt tribute to him and I'm sure the sentiments are widely shared.
