Research Overview

I am a Professor and Associate Dean, Programs at OISE. My scholarship, teaching, and creative professional activity program focus on mathematics teaching and learning, the professional learning of teachers, technology-supported learning, and academic leadership. This work has been supported by research grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), two grants from the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat (Ontario Ministry of Education), a Nelson Publishing research grant, one Learning Consortium grant, two Ministry of Education Transfer grants, many school district research grants, and one Ministry of Education Implementation grant. I have also received internal grants from SSHRC Institutional grants, University of Toronto funding, and other departmental sources.
