Abstract (summary)

CALIBER welcomes Dr. Carla Peck as the keynote speaker. Dr. Carla Peck joined the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta in 2007. Her program of research has two main foci: The first seeks to map the qualitatively different ways that teachers’ and students’ understand key democratic concepts such as diversity, citizenship, and citizen participation in a democracy. The second area of her research is on students’ historical understandings, and in particular, the relationship between students’ ethnic identities and their understandings of history. In 2013, Carla was awarded the Faculty of Education Undergraduate Teaching Award and the Rutherford Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. As Associate Director (Curriculum) Carla is responsible for CTL’s Peer Consultation program, and is available for consultation for other curriculum-related needs as well.
