Gera supports faculty and instructors to integrate and enhance experiential learning in courses and programs, coordinates the Experiential Learning Community of Practice, and contributes to institutional initiatives related to community-engaged and experiential learning at UM.


Gera joined UM in 2017 as a community engaged learning coordinator. In that role, he facilitated experiential-learning opportunities for students to learn with-and-from community organizations locally and abroad. 

Through this role, Gera had the opportunity to build partnerships with Indigenous organizations and co-author Working in Good Ways: A Framework and Resources for Indigenous Community Engagement. 

Before joining The Office of Experiential Learning at the Centre, Gera worked with the Experiential Learning Partnerships team to strengthen UM's ties to industry, government, and community.
