ResearchBelow are some areas of interest to me.
Alternative Teaching Methods
As a school board member, teacher and principal, I developed a love for alternative teaching methods, including redesigning an alternative school, Horizons Exploratory Academy. Within this area, there are some major areas I continue researching on a regular basis.
- Blended Learning Systems (part online - part in person)
- Flipped Classroom Models
- Self-Paced Learning
- Student Directed / Independant Studies
- Alternative grading methods
- Advising programs
- School community and cohort groupings
Learning analytics is the combination of education and machine learning. Naturally, I find the field interesting, especially predicting interventions for students.
Classical Education and Beauty
At HEA, I taught a short class on beauty and the history of education. Both topics are linked together, and I often feel a classical understanding of beauty is missing in our educational system. Beauty is an indicator of truth, and without it, truth becomes difficult to understand.
