Moral Leadership - This line of study explores how moral reasoning is taught and learned in a leadership context. I also study the critical factors involved in developing the courage and integrity needed to follow-up moral thinking with moral action.
Education Policy - My interest in education policy includes the study of how resources are distributed in schools and how students use those resources. I am particularly interested in strategies for engaging students in meaningful learning practice. My former teachers that have most influenced my research agenda include Ted Sizer, Ken Strike, and David Monk.
Instructional Technology - Born mostly out of my own interest in integrating technology into my college teaching. I am focused on evaluating the value added impact technology has on student learning.
