Dr Colin Furness

Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream
Faculty of Information, University of Toronto
  
I am a teaching stream assistant professor at the University of Toronto's graduate Faculty of Information.  My primary field is knowledge management, with a focus on the effective use of technology.  (I am also an epidemiologist with a status cross-appointment at the Institute for Health Policy Management and Evaluation, in the Faculty of Public Health.)

As our Faculty's first teaching stream hire, I am pleased to serve as Academic Lead for our young co-op programme, and I am actively engaged in research seeking to identify valid measurable outcomes for work-integrated learning.  I am scaffolding this work by simultaneously pursuing a research MA at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).
