Welcome to Brenda Morris' webpage

Welcome to the study of Child and Adult Development. Whether you are an Education student, a Nursing student or another interested undergraduate student I invite you to explore the exciting field of Child and Adult Development by engaging with the course material, textbook(s), fellow course participants and lectures over the coming weeks and months. It is my sincere hope that your study and learning in this area will contribute richly to your future professional work with children and adults.

I am delighted to have joined the teaching staff at Nipissing University in 2006, having come from the Department of Applied Social Studies (Master of Social Work program) at University College Cork, Ireland. I have also studied at Laurentian University in Sudbury and Carleton University in Ottawa, where I also lived and worked in the field of paediatric and adult healthcare for many years.

If there are issues regarding the course that you wish to discuss with me outside of class time, please feel free to make an appointment via email. As I am a part-time member of the Faculty at Nipissing, it may be a day or two before I reply to your email. I will respond to your request as soon as possible, usually by the end of the week it is received.
