LEADERSHIP SHAPES LEARNING

Dr. Christine Ho Younghusband is passionate about teaching and learning and the role of leadership to enhance the student learning experience in K-12 and in higher education. LEADERSHIP SHAPES LEARNING. Educators, administrators, researchers, governors, parents, community, and students are leaders of learning. Christine earned her doctorate in Educational Leadership in 2017 from Simon Fraser University (SFU) and currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). Christine remains connected to SFU as an Affiliate Scholar at the Centre for the Study of Educational Leadership and Policy (CSELP) and member of the Academic Council at the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture, and Education (CIRCE).

Christine is driven by THINKING FORMATIVE. Christine’s research interests include subject matter acquisition, formative assessment, professional learning, mathematics education, culture and mathematics, policies and practice, and leadership. Christine is a sessional instructor at St. Mark’s College and co-moderator of #bcedchat on Twitter. Her career in BC education includes teaching secondary mathematics (16-years), serving as a school trustee (7-years), and contributing to the Math K-9 Curriculum Development Team (3-years) and BC Association of Mathematics Teachers (BCAMT) executive committee (8-years).

Christine is a LEARNER first. She engages in “learning by doing” guided by curiosity and inquiry. Christine was a member of the B.Ed. and M.Ed. Program Renewal Committees and UNBC and continues to contribute at the university as a member of Senate, the member of the Pedagogy Vision Committee, moderator of #UNBCed social media, and faculty sponsor of the UNBC Education Club. She values experiential learning, formative assessment, and reflection.
