Nicole Lamers' research and experience are in the fields of internationalization – both at the secondary and post-secondary level – as well as in the emerging field of global studies – and more specifically Global Studies in Education. As a graduate student, she was involved in the initial development and implementation of the Global Studies in Education Online Masters Program, which eventually became a part of her dissertation research. She has also been involved in the revision of curriculum for the on-campus undergraduate major of Global Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Science. Her current research revolves around both the theoretical and practical aspects of a pedagogy for global studies. She is also interested in issues of education in international development, place-based environmental education and what U.S. schools have to learn from alternative school movements on both a local and global scale.
She also holds a partial appointment in the Office of International Programs at the College of Education.
