Dr. Heather McLeod
I am an Associate Professor with the Faculty of Education and I teach arts education courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Before entering the academy I taught in British Columbia, and in Nunavut, Canada, and I have also worked in communications, training and policy development for a provincial teachers’ federation and for government. In 2013 I won a national award for Excellence and Innovation in the K-12 Classroom from The Canadian Network for Innovation in Education, for authoring the online course Education 6107 - Arts Education: Creativity in the Classroom.
