Area of expertise: 
  • Mathematics education
  • Ethnomathematics
  • Critical thinking and decision-making
  • ​Financial literacy education
  • Inquiry based-learning
  • Robotics
  • Learning and teaching probability
  • Professional development for teachers
  • Epistemological stances
  • Collaborative research
  • Professional learning communities
Current research: 

Professor Savard's research focuses on the contribution of mathematics in elementary school to the development of citizenship competencies, such as decision-making and critical thinking about gambling, from an ethnomathematical perspective. Dr. Savard's research attempts to define the conceptual field of probability for learning and teaching in the mathematical context.

 Her work also looks at the use of robotics to develop scientific and mathematical competencies within a context of interdisciplinarity, and at the professional development of teachers through Professional Learning Communities. In addition, Professor Savard's research focuses on how financial literacy education, decision-making and critical thinking in K-12 contribute to developing citizenship.
