Teaching and postgraduate supervision

I currently teach two semester long courses to Masters students: Education, Skills, and Development (EDUC 7131) and Knowledge and Work (EDUC 7133). I developed these courses as part of a new cutting edge interdisciplinary teaching package on Education and Work that I developed. Previously I taught Research Design to the M.Ed students. For all three courses, I have been responsible for designing the course, putting the course pack together, selecting readings, and presenting the course.

I also supervise post-graduate students, as listed below.
