Research Interests: 

My current research interest entails three areas: 1) diversity issues in teacher education programs, most particularly culturally responsive teaching, 2) the possibilities and challenges for teaching reading, writing, language with new media, and 3) Online learning as it relates to online lesson study, and the development of learning communities within higher education.

Past Research activities/experience:
