Max has strong ties with three Canadian universities.He joined the University of Alberta in 1976, and until his retirement in 2008 he was a Professor of Secondary Education in research methods, pedagogy and curriculum studies.He is presently professor emeritus at the University of Alberta, and adjunct professor at the University of Victoria.By contrast the plains cultures on the prairie to the south relied on the buffalo.The predominant political force on the prairie during the fur trade, the Blackfoot Confederacy, would not allow the Hudson's Bay Company to establish itself within Blackfoot territory, preferring to ride to Edmonton House (established 1795) to trade.
To the east, the 110th meridian west separates it from the province of Saskatchewan, while on the west its boundary with British Columbia follows the 120th meridian west south from the Northwest Territories at 60°N until it reaches the Continental Divide at the Rocky Mountains, and from that point follows the line of peaks marking the Continental Divide in a generally southeasterly direction until it reaches the Montana border at 49°N.
During his early studies at the University of Alberta Max was struck by the deep intellectual chasm that existed between the pedagogical approaches to education in the Netherlands and the strong behaviorism and systems analysis of North American education.
In contrast to the emphasis upon teacher performance and observable outcomes of the latter, the pedagogical approaches addressed the personal, relational, motivational, emotional and values-based preconditions of good teaching.
From 1973 1976 he was at the University of Toronto, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education as an assistant professor of curriculum and social education.
During the 1980s and 1990s, he taught in the summer graduate program of the Faculty of Education at the University of Victoria as a Visiting Professor.
