Dr. Jarvis teaches courses in the teacher education (BEd) and graduate education (MEd/PhD) programs within the Schulich School of Education (SSoE) at Nipissing University, North Bay, Ontario. His research interests include instructional technology, mathematics of the workplace, curriculum integration, and teacher professional learning.
He has recently completed a SSHRC-funded international (Canada/UK) research project exploring the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) technology in undergraduate mathematics instruction; and created the online RE4MUL8 resource for teachers of mathematics. He is currently involved in the following collaborative research projects: GeoVisage, a spatial decision support tool for northern Ontario farmers (with Geography & Computer Science); instructional CAS technology in undergraduate mathematics teaching (with colleagues from Brock U, U Alberta); the Education for Innovation (E4I), Canadian Teacher Resource (with SSoE colleagues); Choose a Path That Includes Math (CAPTIM), external review of an online resource for Grades 7-12 students and their parents/guardians (with Dr. L. Colgan, Queen’s U); and, the Mathematics Knowledge Network of Ontario (Centre for Mathematics Education, Fields Institute; Advisory Panel, Critical Transitions Community of Practice Member; Jarvis/Veres Resource/Research Report (2017): Critical Transition from Grade 8 to Grade 9).
Dan is the co-author (with Dr. Irene Naested) of the book, Exploring the math and art connection: Teaching and learning between the lines (Brush Education, 2012); co-editor (with Dr. Susan Elliott-Johns) of the book, Perspectives on transitions in schooling and instructional practice (University of Toronto Press, 2013); and, co-editor (with Dr. Mumbi Kariuki) of the book, Co-teaching in higher education: From theory to co-practice (University of Toronto Press, 2017).
Dan is a member of the Nipissing University Mathematics Education, Research, and Information Council (NUMERIC); the North Bay Symphony Orchestra (NBSO) Board of Directors; the GeoGebra Institute of Canada (GIC); and the NU Graduate Faculty.
