Christie McIntyre, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and serves as the Department Chair.
Her research interests include teacher development, assessment for student learning (Pre-K to College), and applications of constructivism. She is currently engaged in a longitudinal study of pre-service teachers’ constructions of becoming teachers, and she is working on a collective case study that is documenting how two teachers are applying constructivism in their classrooms. Dr. McIntyre has been invited to share her work related to assessments of teacher candidates at local, state, and national conferences. She has served on college level and university level assessment committees. As the advisor of educ8kdz, she has led two service learning trips to New Orleans, where teacher candidates have worked in schools and child care centers impacted by hurricanes in that area. She also assists the educ8kdz members in local projects that support young children.
