Professeur Claire Duchesne

After fourteen years of work as a primary school special education teacher, I recently ended my doctoral studies and have joined the faculty of education at the University of Ottawa, in Canada. As a professor, I am responsible of teaching undergraduate courses focussing on learning processes, special children education and the supervision of teacher practicum. In graduate studies, I teach adult education courses and my main research interests lie in teachers' professional development, meaning of work and learning in adulthood research issues.
