Educational Studies – General



I am a racialized scholar and educator, originally from Cambodia. I have been an educator and researcher in the postsecondary educational setting for two decades and have taught in my native country, Cambodia, and in Canada. I am currently a sessional lecturer in the Department of Educational Studies, UBC, where I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the Teacher Education, Adult Learning and Education, and the M.Ed. in Adult Learning and Global Change programs. I hold a Ph.D. in Educational Studies from UBC, an M.A. in International Peace Studies from the United Nations-mandated University for Peace in Costa Rica, an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Simon Fraser University in Canada, a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Linguistics from Regional Language Centre in Singapore, and a B.Ed. in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from the Department of English, Institute of Foreign Languages, Cambodia.
My main areas of research and teaching interests center around adult and higher education and social justice/equity in ‘postcolonial’ and/or post-conflict/transitional societies, neoliberalism and public education, and adult learning and sustainability. My published works can be found in Studies in Higher Education, Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, Journal of Educational Administration and History, Asia Pacific Journal of Tourism Research, and Tourism Recreation Research. My latest book, Neoliberalism and Public Education Finance Policy in Canada: Reframing Educational Leadership as Entrepreneurship (co-authored with Wendy Poole and Gerald Fallon), can be accessed at:
