Timothy A. Brunet

Sessional Instructor Economics, University of Windsor

I am a Higher Education professional with extensive experience in teaching leadership theory, economic philosophy (specifically the human development and capability approach), digital, interpersonal, external, and organizational communication. I research the governance of Anglophone higher education systems. I am the Canadian representative of the Human Development and Capability Association North American Network and lead the Outstanding Scholars program at the University of Windsor and Student Leadership conferences in the Student Success and Leadership Centre.

I have received research funding from SSHRC for the UWill Discover Sustainable Futures Project. With over 30 courses taught at UWindsor, I've refined my pedagogical practice and curriculum design. My teaching philosophy engages students in bodies of knowledge while giving them opportunities to have a voice in their disciplines, on our campus, and in their communities.
