Katherine McGuire

Member of the Scientific Committee, presenter and workshop facilitator.

Katherine McGuire is a Senior Instructor of Psychology at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John, Canada. She has qualifications in Psychology and Adult Education and has been involved in research in both areas. In addition to obtaining a Masters in Adult Education and a Master of Arts in Psychology, she has earned a Diploma in University Teaching and has been teaching in higher education since 1996.

As a dedicated teacher she continues to make efforts towards pedagogical improvement both within her own classes and her workplace, actively participating in improving the overall pedagogical standards at her university. She has provided important support for student advising and recruitment, has held workshops in student success, and has served on the organising committee for many on-campus teaching related events. Katherine is the current co-chair of the Teaching Excellence and Policy Senate Committee and is a member of both the Vice-President’s Excellence in Teaching Committee and the University of New Brunswick Research Ethics Board. Locally, she is a member of the interprofessional Health Research Committee and, nationally, was a member of the 2010 organizing committee for the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (a conference focused on issues relevant to instructional technology).

She and her collaborators have published research in refereed journals and conference proceedings and have presented at local, national, and international conferences. Much of her research has focused on cognitive psychology, pedagogical issues, and the improvement of teaching effectiveness. She has taught at the international level at Beijing Concord College, China and on a volunteer basis at Emmanuel College in Swaziland.

She has a love for travel which has taken her from beneath the pyramids of Giza to Basecamp Mount Everest. This passion and a deep desire to help underprivileged children, has led her to work on projects in South Africa, Swaziland, and the Ukraine.
