Areas of expertise:
primary research program examines the interactions between curriculum and community contexts, specifically in relation to the arts and rural education. My research has examined music education programs in rural areas in Canada, and has explored the educational experiences of self-taught Indigenous artists who grew up in Canada’s North. I am also interested in how people use the skills and knowledge gained through musical experiences into other aspects of their lives. In particular, I am examining how children in an after-school music program learn music and the extent to which these musical experiences influence their sense of belonging and self-concept. My research also examines how young alumni from music programs use the skills and knowledge in their present work situations. Finally, I examine the use of technology in educational contexts and explore how teachers use various digital tools for their own professional development and to support their students’ learning.
