Research Interests

Dr. Robyn Ilten-Gee's primary research interests are in children's moral/social development and reasoning, critical and social justice pedagogy, and digital media. She takes a critical approach to moral development, investigating ways in which a developmental framework can illuminate possibilities for critical pedagogy and critical moral reasoning. Dr. Ilten-Gee is especially interested in how digital media production (e.g. podcasting, multimedia journalism) in classroom settings facilitates a process of students rethinking and revising conclusions and judgments about the world and themselves. As part of enacting critical moral development in the classroom, she is interested in culturally-sustaining frameworks of social-emotional education and strategies for responding to student trauma and chronic stress in educational environments.
