Research Grants and Contracts

Her SSHRC funded research examines teachers' personal theories about the nature of ability and disability, and the resultant of differences in teachers' customary teaching practices. Currently, she is involved in research entitled “ The Development of Teachers’ Epistemological Beliefs and their Impact on Teaching Practices. She is examining the beliefs-practice link with pre-service, novice, mid-career and experienced teachers, and traces the formative events that have led highly skilled teachers to adapt their instruction to accommodate diversity in their classrooms.
