About Kathryn Hibbert

My research interests revolve around a focus on the 'scholarship of teaching and learning' (Boyer, 1990), the pedagogy of multiliteracies (The New London Group, 2000) and communities of professional practice (Lave & Wenger, 1991). In particular, my interests lie in looking at policies/decisions/practices surrounding learning environments that stimulate and engage teachers' intellectual curiosity in ways that inform pedagogical decisions that ultimately create rich learning environments for both teachers and students. I am keenly interested in what we, as teachers, can learn from students.
