Research Interests

My current research interests focus on how instructional/teacher development and curriculum innovation (i.e. content and language-integrated learning, intercultural competency development) can improve teaching and student learning, particularly in a multilingual and multicultural K-12 and university environments. Given my current leadership role, I am also interested in broader questions of systemic educational change that supports inclusion and student success of multilingual learners, with a particular focus on the development of professional learning communities, and the nature and impact of interdisciplinary collaborations. In addition, I have been engaged in projects related to educational assessment and evaluation at the course and program levels in various disciplinary contexts.
