Dr. Alex Gunn thinks curiously about the place and possibility of critically oriented curriculum from early childhood education me ngā Kōhanga Reo into kura and school.

Gunn is Associate Dean (Teacher Education) & Associate Professor at the University of Otago College of Education. She has been at the University of Otago College of Education since 2011 where she teaches and researches early childhood education, inclusive education, teacher education, and assessment. While her teaching home is early childhood education, Gunn has worked for almost 30 years within and across the education system, curious about teachers’ beliefs and practices, and how teacher actions come to reflect and (re)produce certain norms.
