Qualifications & Memberships
Current research interests include issues related school-university collaboration and networked learning, especially as it serves culturally responsive practice; school renewal and innovation; leadership capacity-building; and teacher professional development. Previously, I was the Principal Investigator for the 'Alaska Educational Innovations Network', a school-university collaborative partnership focused on developing research-based strategies to enhance pre-service teacher education and develop high quality, job-embedded professional learning for K-20 educators.
