Audrey Paradis

Since I completed my PhD project regarding the narratives of autonomy from teachers in Canada and in Finland, my research has now evolved in 2 main directions. One is about community-based participatory research, researching the methodology itself but also using it to research Indigenous teacher education. The other research avenue is about mathematics teaching and collaborative learning.
I have been teaching in the Faculty of Education since 2014, to Masters' Students, and Intercultural Teacher Education students. I have taught partially or completely around 20 different courses, and supervise 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 permanent high school teachers in NWT Canada for 7 years, where I was teaching senior Mathematics, Physics and Chemisty. 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.
