Matteo Di Muro

I serve as an Assistant Professor within the Faculty of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy at Brandon University (BU). In this role, I specialize in teaching technology, coding, and media courses. Currently, I am a Ph. D. candidate at the University of Regina, where my research focuses on sustained technology integration stemming from teachers’ experiences during pandemic teaching and instruction.


My undergraduate degrees comprise of a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Mathematics in 2011 as well as a Bachelor of Education in 2011, both from Brandon University. I completed a Master’s Degree in Educational Technology from the Werklund School of Education at University of Calgary.


Previously, I taught in the K-12 school system in Brandon School Division from 2011 – 2020. During that time, I served as a teacher at Vincent Massey High School,  primarily instructing Grades 9 – 12 math, primarily focusing on grades 11/12 pre-calculus. Following one of my passions, I developed a computer science program catering to students in grades 10 through 12 at Vincent Massey. From 2020-2021, I worked as Brandon School Division’s Educational Technology Specialist, after which I began my role as an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at BU.
