Lecturer – PhD (C), MEd
Josh Markle is a lecturer in mathematics education. Though born in Toronto, Josh spent most of his life in the foothills of southern Alberta, where he taught secondary mathematics. Prior to joining Brock, he was an instructor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge. He is interested in better understanding the relationship between spatial reasoning and other domains of mathematics, the role of the body in knowing and doing mathematics, and more generally, how teaching and learning mathematics can support human and more-than-human flourishing.
