Richard Lebert - Registered Massage Therapist

Registered Massage Therapy in Petrolia

As an educator in the massage therapy program at Lambton College my goal is to encourage: clinical reasoning, critical thinking, and evidence-based practice.

This is accomplished by blending in class hand-on education with a number of digital options to enhance learning. I am currently refining an online teaching resources called The RMT Education Project. It is an educational resource to help students with their learning goals.

In addition to exploring a number of concepts central to the theme of digital transformation in higher education. I have been looking for ways of incorporating principles of inquiry-based learning into my coursework.

I strive to connect learners with the latest scientific finding. My writing has been featured in a number of publications including, but not limited to:
