His research focuses on students' historical thinking and consciousness, Canadian history, citizenship education, and new media and technology in education.
In the early spring ofDr. Funded by CFI, this is the first research centre in Canada to study the on-line learning of history. Innovative approaches, such as eye-tracking analysis, are used to study the methods and quality of virtual learning, to clarify the needs of on-line learners, and to develop the models and contexts that lead to improving the design, presentation and evaluation of web sites, simulations and learning materials in history classrooms.
Through ongoing research and the development of partnerships with the Research Unit "Faire l'histoire: Recent research projects include "The Virtual Historian: Digital History in the Canadian Classroom" www.

Sample Essay Words 1, “The contingency approach is based on the assumption that the relationship between leader behaviors and traits and effectiveness depends on characteristics of the particular situation the leader is in. The contingency theory in management is one of the most important topics that you will study in your management degree.
Many times students are given assignments, case studies and projects related to the contingency approach to management. The contingency approach to management has its roots in general systems theory and the open systems perspective[16,17,18,19], as well as in the Simon-March-Cyert stream of theory and research[20,21,22].
Thompson recognised the intersection. CONTINGENCY APPROACH TO MANAGEMENT The contingency approach to management is based on the idea that there is no one best way to manage and that to be effective, planning, organizing, leading, and controlling must be tailored to the particular circumstances faced by an organization.
