Dr. Beth Hundey works to support curriculum improvement and the evidence-based and thoughtful integration of technology into the classroom. Dr. Hundey supports learning at a range of scales, from consults on lessons and courses, to module and program level design. She is also an Adjunct Research Faculty in the Centre for Research in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, Western University.

Her educational research interests include the role of science communication in graduate training, best practices in online teaching mentorship programs, and mapping non-traditional components of the curriculum. She also has a keen interest in helping departments communicate their program strengths through curriculum mapping and analysis.

Dr. Hundey is trained as a scientist and geographer with an interdisciplinary focus on Environment and Sustainability. Dr. Hundey is also an occasional Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography. Her graduate and undergraduate teaching in physical geography and biology have brought her from the large lecture hall, to Western Active Learning Space, to field courses in Ontario and northern Sweden.
