Personal website

  • Educational leadership in post secondary settings
  • Educational reform
  • Curriculum change in K-12 and post secondary settings
My interests are in educational change and innovation. I have conducted research on the educational uses of digital technologies, school and community based violence prevention programs, and the ways in which schools can better meet the needs of Indigenous learners.
My current projects include a Faculty-School District research project that is looking at notions of personalized learning.  In the coming year I will be working with a newly created independent school that uses on student focused inquiry as a framework for learning.
