Stephan Bourget teaches physics in career and pre-university programs at Vanier College in Quebec, Canada. He also taught in many francophone CEGEPs. He obtained a master of education (MEd) from the University of Sherbrooke through his work in physics education research (PER), more specifically on the application of modeling instruction in college physics. Besides physics education, he is very interested in biophysical economics, general semantics, cybernetics, systems theory and social design. His concern for global challenges like climate change, environmental degradation and human exploitation has led him to develop a course on design for a sustainable future.
