Dr. Jarvis teaches courses in the teacher education (BEd) and graduate education (MEd/PhD) programs within the Schulich School of Education. His research interests include instructional technology (particularly in mathematics), curriculum integration, teacher professional learning, and mathematics of the workplace. He has recently collaborated on a SSHRC-funded international (Canada/UK) research project exploring the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) technology in undergraduate mathematics instruction. He is currently involved in the following collaborative research projects: co-teaching in graduate studies (with Dr. Kariuki); mathematics and technology use in nursing education and practice (with School of Nursing); GeoVisage, a spatial decision support tool for northern Ontario farmers (with Geography & Computer Science); CAS technology use in undergraduate mathematics teaching (with colleagues from Brock U and U Alberta); and, QED-Tutrix math software implementation (SSHRC Insight Grant; international team). Dan is the co-author (with Dr. Irene Naested) of the book, Exploring the math and art connection: Teaching and learning between the lines (Brush Education, 2012); and, co-editor (with Dr. Susan Elliott-Johns) of the book, Perspectives on transitions in schooling and instructional practice (University of Toronto Press, 2013).
