BSc, MSc, PhD (Calgary)
My research currently focuses on curiosity and inquiry and the relationship between risk and trust in learning environments. I am particularly interested in understanding how curiosity and inquiry can help promote investment and ownership of learning and more meaningful engagement in both the classroom and in our day to day interactions with others. I am also exploring the "biliterate brain" and developing ways to improve learners' understanding of non-fiction textual material presented on paper and screen and their ability to engage in writing and discussion when learning. I bring the best of both quantitative and qualitative inquiry to my research by using mixed methodology approaches wherever possible.
