Teresa Anne Fowler

Assistant Professor, Education, Concordia University of Edmonton

Teresa Anne Fowler received her Ph.D. in Curriculum and Learning at the Werklund School of Education at the University in Calgary and now is an assistant professor at the Concordia University of Edmonton. Her doctoral research was focused on elite male youth hockey players’ experiences with disengagement in schools. Using arts-based research methods, her research also extends into critical White masculinity studies with a focus on the impact of hypermasculinity on men’s mental health and wellness. Teresa has also completed research projects with Indigenous People’s experiences in schools, teacher’s experiences with using formative feedback, and is currently working with a team from the University of Calgary to develop teacher gatekeeper training for youth suicide prevention. She currently has a book in press that uses duoethnography to engage in critical conversations and just sighed a contract to edit a book on the myths of inclusion and wellness in K-12 schools. Other publications can be accessed through Orcid.
