I have been an elementary and secondary school teacher and administrator. Currently, I am a faculty member in the Faculty of Education at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My M.Ed. and Ph.D. had a focus on the educational and linguistic experiences of children who moved from other countries to Canada.

Canadian perspectives on global citizenship

Today I'm presenting a paper at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) meeting in Vancouver. The paper provides an overview of a variety of Canadian university programs for global citizenship education as well as some of the recent Canadian literature on the topic. The second part of the paper considers the transformationalist (McGew, 2000; Shultz, 2007) approach we've taken at WLU with our Glocal initiative.

A copy of my PowerPoint from today's presentation is available on my WLU web-site (click here):

Sorry for the goose-chase but I couldn't attach the PowerPoint in my blog!
