Research Interests

My research interests run across three main categories:

  • Political Forms of Learning – what is the relationship between learning theory and issues of social equity? My research centers on how politics, activism, and theories of learning come together.
  • Discourse Analysis – what is the relationship between language and learning? Methodologically, I draw primarily on discursive psychology in my research.
  • Participatory Forms of Research – how can we engage in learning sciences research with rather than on folks? In addition to more common forms of participatory action research, I am interested in sustainable and equitable relationships between university-based researchers and community stakeholders.

I also have interest in and emergent experience with:

  • Math Education
  • Learning Spaces
  • Constructionism
  • Online learning (MOOCs; digital credentialing)
