David J. Hornsby is the associate vice-president (Teaching and Learning) at Carleton and a professor in the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.

“It is such a privilege to be part of this committee, which will be an important element of Carleton’s response to the TRC,” says Hornsby. “The Carleton community will only be enriched by finding ways to include Indigenous ideas and knowledge into our teaching and learning practices. I look forward to working with colleagues from across campus and to drawing on my experience in South Africa, where similar efforts were made to be more inclusive of different ways of knowing and being.”

Hornsby’s research interests include pedagogy in higher education, science in the international political economy and Canadian foreign policy in Africa. He has a strong interdisciplinary research record, having published in both the biological and social sciences.

Prior to joining Carleton, Hornsby was a department head at University College London and assistant dean of Humanities (Teaching and Learning) at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. He currently sits on the boards of Canadian Foreign Policy Journal and Active Learning in Higher Education.
