Research recast(ed): S1E4 - A conversation with Dr. Emily Milne

Faculty Advisor




Indigenous students, parent envolvement

Abstract (summary)

Today we learn about a more personal approach to focus groups, the importance of listening, and working with community partners to make sure that research benefits those participating. Joining us is Dr. Emily Milne, an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at MacEwan University. She is an applied sociologist and a community-engaged researcher. We talk about her ongoing project with Ben Calf Robe School, giving kids cameras to capture their experiences as the school prepares to move into a new building. We also talk about Emily’s recent project with Edmonton Public Schools and some of the most promising practices to emerge from the exploration of the perspectives of Indigenous students and their families when it comes to Indigenous parent involvement in the education process. If you would like to follow up on any of this information or get your hand on a copy of the reports mentioned in this episode, Dr. Emily Milne welcomes you to email her at
