Within the broad and exciting field of Early Childhood Education, my two primary research areas include Pedagogical Documentation and Intergenerational Teaching and Learning. My research has explored pedagogical documentation as it relates to image, formative assessment and responsive curriculum development. My funded projects include the use of pedagogical documentation in early childhood classroom environments (Kindergarten and grade 1) and in clinical settings among mothers with preterm infants in hospital care. My research on Intergenerational Teaching and Learning has included investigations of Shared Reading Programs and supportive strategies for young learners. Most recently this has included intergenerational teaching and learning strategies within a First Nations Heritage Language Revitalization Program.
