Jay's Research Page
Below are links to a variety of manuscripts, some of which have been published, some are in press, and some are just thought-pieces. My research interests focus on the fields of experiential education and environmental studies. I am particularly interested in the intersections between ecology and education, curriculum theory and philosophies of education, and the emerging field of brain-based learning.
I welcome feedback and discussion on any of my work!
