Assistant Professor, Department of Educational Studies
My research interests continue to evolve with my age and my own maturity. Presently, I am involved in investigating the changing role of the professoriate in the post-secondary-education system in Ontario. I have examined (and continue to examine) it and from influences because of “internationalization,” “neo-liberal influences”, and “new-managerialism” of Ontario campuses. The underlying theme of my research is to see how quality is affected by sundry changes in higher education and governance issues of elementary and secondary education. Because my previous work was in computing field, I continue to study and research educational technology matters too.
