Background

PhD, University of Alberta

MEd, University of Alberta

BEd, University of New Brunswick




I joined the faculty of education at MSVU in 2004. I began my career teaching school children in Ireland, Kuwait, and in Canada (BC, NB, and AB). Then for eleven years I taught in the Department of Educational Policy Studies at the University of Alberta and for two years taught at Athabasca University in the Masters of Distance Education program. In 2003-2004, I was research associate at the University of Alberta, with a focus on school-to-work transition.

I was educational consultant for the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, as well as the Department of Education, Culture and Sports, Philippine government. I also conducted research on early childhood education for the Research Centre for Education and Innovation, Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal. I completed a study on migrant domestic workers in the Philippines and Hong Kong and later in Jamaica, while teaching our graduate program in Kingston, I researched returning domestic workers who had worked illegally in Canada. In 2010-11 during my sabbatical I traveled to St Helena island (South Atlantic Ocean) on board the “RMS St Helena” with my family (via South Africa) to research the life biographies of women who had left the island to work as domestic workers in England in the 1950s. While there I also delved into the archives to research my own Saint Helena heritage. For photos and information about my journey, go to: http://www.flickr.com/photos/themount/sets/72157626012690982/, or read the press releases: http://www.msvu.ca/en/home/aboutus/news/susanbrigham.aspx

I have published and presented my research in North America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean on a wide range of topics related to education/lifelong learning and immigration.
