Show Notes

This episode features Dr. Jennifer Tupper who is the Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta. The University of Alberta is a bit of a return home for Dr. Tupper, as she did both her undergraduate and doctorate degrees there.  In between, she was a professor at the University of Regina and moved up to the role of Dean in the faculty of Education.
Dr. Tupper has won many awards for her teaching and research including the 2009 Canadian Association of Curriculum Studies Outstanding Publication Award and the 2002 University of Alberta Graduate Award for Teaching Excellence.
Outside of all of these accomplishments, one of the reasons I wanted to speak with Dr. Tupper is that I am interested in how new teachers are taught and what goes into the program for teachers who are about to enter the classroom. Dr. Tupper provides us with answers and gives us a glimpse into the complicated world of educating future teachers.
