On Sept. 18th, we welcomed Dr. Ronald J. MacDonald as the newest member of the Rotary Club of Charlottetown. Ron is currently the Dean of the Faculty of Education at the University of Prince Edward Island and the Chair of the PEI Literacy Alliance.

Ron has been a junior and senior high school science teacher in Nova Scotia and Ontario, Canada, for 15 years. He has also been an information technology integration specialist and professional development facilitator. Ron's research includes: supporting science teacher communities of practice when they are integrating technologies; gender differences in students’ attitude toward science when technologies are used; the merging of theory and practice in teacher education and project-based learning in science.
