Andrea Sator, PhD

Interim MET Academic Advisor summer 2023

MET Instructor


MET Courses: ETEC 510, ETEC 511, Summer Institute


“My doctoral work investigated teacher candidates’ theories of knowledge in a technological environment and a post-secondary teacher educator’s pedagogy of technology teacher education. This self-study attended to the pedagogical interdependence of purposeful technological environments with a view to narrowing the epistemic gap between students and teachers.

My instructor role in the MET program affords me the opportunity to continue to delve deeply into learning design and educational technology, giving consideration to major issues that influence the field, such as equity, sustainability, and production pedagogies. I feel privileged to work in MET alongside amazing and collaborative colleagues, as well as emerging scholars, to advance knowledge in the field. One of my many passions is expanding the field of maker pedagogy through the epistemic study of practice to understand the principles that are foundational to maker pedagogy. I’m also keen to investigate the applications of theoretical and pedagogical frameworks in the design of inclusive makerspaces with a focus on justice, equity, diversity, anti-racism, and decolonization of practice.”
