We are excited to share that Dr. Margaret Macintyre Latta has received UBC Okanagan’s 2022 Researcher of the Year, Social Sciences and Humanities. There will be a special celebration to honour our 2022 Researcher of the Year award recipients. We hope you can attend!
Dr. Macintyre Latta is a prominent researcher transforming traditional approaches to education. A champion of interdisciplinary and community-based research, her focus is to advance curriculum as a shared participatory learning experience that inspires reconciliation. Her practice-engaged research with Indigenous, school district and community partners supports educators in decolonizing their curriculum and teaching practices.
Over her career, she has received significant research funding and demonstrated a distinguished record of research. Notably, her current SSHRC Partnership Grant, Co-Curricular-Making: Honouring Indigenous Connections to Land, Culture, and the Relational Self, is connecting researchers, practitioners, and community members to inquire into, provoke, confront and challenge the colonizing practices that influence education, while also seeking respectful ways for educators to embody and orient their curricular practices toward productively contributing to reconciliation efforts.
Everyone is invited to attend a special celebration to honour the 2022 Researcher of the Year award recipients.
Date: Friday, May 6, 2022
Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm | Award presentations followed by a rooftop reception
