Marty has a passion for inclusivity and equality and teaches courses that ask students to examine concepts of health, physical activity, physical education, and sport from historical, philosophical, and sociological perspectives. His main research interests are in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) and the critical study of hockey in Canada. His PhD dissertation, "Making 'Mr. Hockey': Race, Gender, Class, and Nation in Media Representations of Gordie Howe," investigated the cultural meanings of white hockey-playing men and their connection to Canadian national identity.
