David Hunt performing with his band, The Foolish Things, earlier this year.

Dr. Hunt was a remarkable friend to many of us throughout his long career at OISE. He was a colleague’s colleague who tirelessly supported the work of those around him, and his impact was felt across OISE and the field of education.

A genuine lifelong learner, Dr. Hunt reached prominence in the late 1960s with his quantitative research on matching learning models. At OISE, he turned his attention towards qualitative work on the importance of improving education through reflective practice. His many contributions to the field led to his receiving of the Canadian Education Award for Distinguished Contribution to Educational Research.

A prolific writer, his final book in 2010 focused on the importance of friendship – a fitting topic for a man who contributed so much to OISE through his personal kindness, thoughtfulness and devotion to others.
