As a university-based educator and researcher, I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in mathematics education, educational assessment and research methodology. I also collaborate with other researchers on a number of research projects. My current research areas include: exploring ways to support K-12 teachers as they further develop their approach to mathematics teaching and learning; studying teachers’ use of assessment to support learning in various subject areas; and gathering insights about school-based courses in teacher education programs.
Alongside my teaching and research, I frequently work with educators in Manitoba and Ontario to facilitate professional learning on the topics such as: research-based approaches to mathematics teaching and learning; strategies for using assessment to support learning; and how to make valid interpretations from large-scale assessment results. Some of the formats I have offered include: interactive presentations for educators and/or parent groups, developing a sequence of workshops for teachers and/or school administrators, acting as a critical friend, and providing ongoing support for PLCs and other teacher-led inquiry teams.
I invite you to explore my website to learn more about my work. Feel free to contact me if you are planning a professional learning opportunity in your school or school division, thinking about beginning a Masters or PhD program or have other questions.
