Beth Archer-Kuhn

Associate Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary

Dr. Beth Archer-Kuhn is an associate professor with the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. Her research agenda is twofold; focusing on teaching strategies and methods in higher education, for example, inquiry-based learning, and outcomes for students (transformational learning), while also pursuing shared parenting and the overlap of families experiencing domestic violence. Both areas of research consider and privilege participant voice.
