Ann-Louise Davidson

Associate Professor, Education, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada


Ann-Louise Davidson’s research activities pursue two different, yet interrelated, lines of inquiry. The first line of inquiry pertains to understanding how teaching and learning evolves through digital technology. The second line of inquiry pertains to understanding how digital technologies can improve the life condition of people living with intellectual disabilities, and help them develop a better sense of autonomy and self-advocacy. Overall, she strives to identify under which conditions digital technology has the potential to improve the condition of human beings and documents and analyzes successful experiences using interpretative inquiry and action research techniques. Her core aim is to gain a deep understanding of the qualitative changes in teaching, learning and living with technologies.  As such, her contributions, partnership and collaborations make her an integral part of the EILAB.
