Liz is a veteran educator who started her career over thirty years ago as a special education teacher. That experience taught her that all children are learning all the time. Perhaps not the same things and not at the same time, but all are learning all the time. Her experiences have taught her to study children while they are learning and you will learn how to help them when they are struggling. She returned to school 15 years ago to complete a doctorate in Educational Psychology. Her research is centered on how students learn using technology and video games and the nature of the student-teacher relationship in environments where the student is leading the learning. She is particularly interested in how teachers define their role and how to best prepare teachers to learn with the child. Her strength is in teaching human development, learning theory and pedagogy.
