Education and Globalisation (Edglo)
Since my PhD about the narratives of autonomy from teachers in Canada and in Finland, my research evolved in different directions. One is about community-based participatory research, researching the methodology itself aiming to use it while researching Indigenous teacher education. I am also involved in researching the narrative methodology to make it more accessible to novice researchers. I am in a collaboration investigating mathematics teaching and collaborative learning. Finally, with a keen interest in social justice, I have collected data over several years to advance minorities issues (such as racism) in higher education.
I have been teaching in the Faculty of Education since 2014, to Edglo and ITE students. I have taught partially or completely around 20 different courses, and supervised more than 25 Bachelor's and Master's thesis. My past education is directly aligned with my current research/teaching, informing my work in a significant way. I completed my Master's of education in 2013, also in the Faculty of Education of the University of Oulu. Before that, I was a high school teachers in the Northwest Territories in Canada for 7 years, where I was teaching senior Mathematics, Physics and Chemisty, and where I also assumed several leadership positions while teaching there. I completed my Bachelor's of education in mathematics and physics, in 2004, from Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada.
