Jordan is a doctoral student in the Department of Educational Studies at the University of British Columbia. His research interests include the three broad areas of democratic and citizenship education and educational leadership and administration. More specifically, he is interested in how educational leaders use their positions of power to develop and maintain thick democratic environments that encourage engaged citizenship in their schools. During his time at the University of Alberta, Jordan was fortunate to teach many undergraduate classes in the Faculty of Education. He loves to teach, especially future teachers, and is passionate about teaching and learning at the post-secondary level. He is the lucky recipient of the University of Alberta Faculty of Education’s Sessional Undergraduate Teaching Award. Jordan hopes to bring this experience into the SoTL position and help other instructors improve their teaching practice.
