Dr. Cathy Bruce is a Professor and Dean of the School of Education and Professional Learning and Director of the Centre for Teaching and Learning at Trent University, Canada. In 2013 she was awarded the prestigious Ontario Colleges and University Faculty Association Teaching Award for teaching excellence. In 2015 she was awarded the Eduardo Flores International Leadership Award for her leadership in action research. She has an active SSHRC funded research program through which she and her research team investigate teacher and student efficacy, the effectiveness of alternative models of professional learning for teachers, the use of technology in the mathematics classroom, as well as teaching and learning in the difficult-to-learn areas of fractions and algebra. An exciting area of her research relates to mathematics for young children, involving teachers and other researchers as well as young students from JK-Grade 2, to investigate what children are capable of spatially and mathematically, given rich tasks and adequate support in an atmosphere of playful learning. Her research involves collaborating with educators in classrooms to bridge research-practice gaps in education.
