His areas of teaching are educational leadership, school law and policy, educational policy studies, and policymaking in education.Walker, Keith D.: - "Keith Walker (Ph.D., University of Saskatchewan) is a professor in the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy and in the Department of Educational Administration in the College of Education at the University of Saskatchewan. He believes in the fundamental importance of robust systems of early childhood, K-12 education, and post-secondary education for the well-being of civil societies and has a wide-angle focus on lifelong and life-wide education in his work. To his way of thinking, organizational-community and leadership learning and development in all three sectors (public, social and private) are critical. His academic expertise in educational administration, executive leadership, organizational development and applied ethics match well with his public policy research interests (governance, leadership-constituent relationships and social policy). Walker's present projects range from an examination of trust - why it is important, how it can be sustained - to how we might further engage public and social sectors to become flourishing and engaging organizations."
