Dr. Bryant Jensen is an associate professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Brigham Young University. He teaches courses in learning theory, multicultural education, quantitative methods, and design-based research. His research addresses the improvement of classroom teaching and learning for underserved children, particularly Latinos from Mexican and Central American immigrant families. He uses observational and mixed methods to address teacher learning and equity in Pre-K, K-6, and middle school teaching. Currently he is working with researchers and public school educators on continuous improvement measures for teacher learning teams:
1) to enact equitable math teaching in rural Morelos, Mexico;
2) to enact equitable classroom talk in low-income schools on O’ahu, Hawaii; and
3) to use an open education resource (OER) to realize and sustain equitable practices in Provo, Utah.
Previously Bryant was a research associate for the National Task Force on Early Education for Hispanics, a Fulbright scholar in Mexico, teacher educator in California's San Joaquin Valley, and a postdoc fellow at the University of Oregon. His most recent book, with Dr. Patricia Gandara at UCLA, is The Students We Share: Preparing Mexican and US Teachers for Our Transnational Future (SUNY Press, 2021). Bryant is a first-generation college graduate. He and his superhuman spouse Taryn are the parents of five children and live in Provo.
