Megan Zeni has returned to the Faculty of Education, after 20 years of K-7 classroom teaching, to pursue her PhD in curriculum and pedagogy. With an M.Ed from the University of Toronto (OISE) that explored the academic value of play, her research interests have expanded to include teacher perceptions of risky play at school and playful inquiry in outdoor learning spaces. Megan has extensive experience teaching in public school outdoor classrooms, and consults broadly on school garden pedagogy with practical strategies for joyful outdoor play and learning. In her spare time, she enjoys gardening, hiking, boating, and skiing with her family in this beautiful province we call home!
