Laurie Hill is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at St. Mary’s University. Her research interests include teacher education, teacher professional identity and teacher becoming, especially the way in which field experiences shape how student teachers understand their emerging practice and sense of what it means to be (and to become) a teacher. She is also interested in teacher well-being, student transitions, as well as gender and equity issues as they relate to education. Dr. Hill is a member of the editorial team for Papers on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching and her current service includes the national boards for the Canadian Society for the Study of Higher Education (CSSHE) and the Canadian Association for the Study of Women in Education (CASWE).
