Dr. Jarvis teaches courses in the teacher education (BEd) and graduate education (MEd/PhD) programs within the Schulich School of Education at Nipissing University, North Bay, Ontario. He has completed a SSHRC-funded international (Canada/UK) research project exploring the use of Computer Algebra Systems (CAS) technology in undergraduate mathematics instruction. He has also worked on the following collaborative research projects: GeoVisage, a spatial decision support tool for northeastern Ontario farmers (with Geography and Computer Science colleagues); technological and mathematical demands on nurses and nursing students (with School of Nursing and BPHE colleagues); innovative CAS technology use in undergraduate mathematics teaching and assessment (with Dr. C. Buteau, Brock U; Dr. C. Doran, U Alberta); the Education for Innovation (E4I) Canadian Teacher Resource (with SSoE colleagues); and, the Mathematics Knowledge Network of Ontario.
