His doctoral research focused on the use of blogging communities in education and their impact on the quality of student writing, student engagement, and the changing role of the teacher.

Konrad has presented his research at numerous educational conferences and spent the last seven years researching online communities in education and the role of reflective practice in teacher development. He is passionate about helping schools and teachers successfully integrate technology in a variety of subject areas. He has worked with pre- and in-service teachers in Canada, the United States, and internationally, most recently in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and Rwanda.
