Project leader for the case study "The Informal Learning of Volunteer Workers"

"In 1998 I joined the Department of Adult Education, Community Development and Counselling Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (OISE/UT).

I serve on the Executive Boards of the Canadian Association for Studies in Adult Education (CASAE) and the Red de Investigadores sobre Educacion Superior (RISEU), and on the Editorial Boards of the Education Policy Analysis Archives (EPAA) and the Journal of Postcolonial Education, among others. I am also a member of the Citizenship Education Research Network (CERN), the International Advisory Council of the Instituto Paulo Freire, and Urbared (an alternative urban social policies network).

At OISE/UT, I serve as the departmental representative to CIDEC (Comparative and International Development and Education Centre). I am a member of the Adult Literacy Working Group (ALWG), the New Approaches to Lifelong Learning (NALL) research network, and the Transformative Learning Centre (TLC). I am also the founder of Lared (Latin American Research, Education and Development), a network of OISE/UT students, faculty and alumni interested in Latin American education and/or the education of Latin Americans in diaspora. I was also a member of the organizing committee of the Fourth International Conference on Transformative Learning held in Toronto in November 2001. Currently I am part of the organizing committee of the October 2003 TLC conference, "Lifelong citizenship learning, participatory democracy and social change."
