SAEE hires new Research Director



    VANCOUVER, Aug. 5 /CNW/ - The Society for the Advancement of Excellence
in Education (SAEE) is pleased to announce Dr. Elizabeth Bredberg is assuming
the role of Research Director pending the retirement of Helen Raham on
July 31, 2008.
    Elizabeth has a PhD in education theory from the Ontario Institute for
Studies in Education (the graduate faculty of education of the University of
Toronto). Although Dr. Bredberg's career in education has focused on special
education, her interests also include educational policy, teacher education,
aboriginal education, and service to students in rural and remote areas. She
has taught in teacher education programs at the Universities of British
Columbia and Toronto, McGill, and King's College, Aberdeen and in the early
childhood education program at Queensland University of Technology in
Australia. She has lectured and presented many workshops on education issues
in Canada, the UK and Australia.
    Dr. Bredberg has been involved in policy development regarding the
support of students with special needs in British Columbia, and has been
involved in interministerial collaboration regarding children and youth with
special needs.
    Elizabeth's education and experience will enable SAEE to continue to
develop its recognized commitment to high quality education research.
    SAEE looks forward to the outstanding guidance that Dr. Bredberg will
bring to the research department and her insights into resulting policy
implications.
