A Research Journey Across Paradigms – TRU Newsroom

November 1, 2022 at 5:43 pm  Education, Kamloops, News

Professor Gloria Ramirez, School of Education

Dr. Gloria Ramirez is a featured speaker in the Inaugural Professorial Lecture series, which provides an opportunity for the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) and Kamloops communities to meet professors and gain an understanding of their work in an online public lecture. This is the first of two lectures in November, the second will take place with Dr. Courtney Mason on November 22.

Ramirez, a professor in the School of Education, investigates children’s bilingual and biliteracy development and the mechanisms that aid the transfer of skills across languages. Recently, she has been collaborating with Secwépemc educators, Elders and knowledge keepers to revitalize Secwepemctsín. On November 8, she will share her transformative journey shifting research paradigms to serve different communities through her work. “Above all, research is service,” says Ramirez. “Researchers should be willing to embrace different paradigms, world views and research approaches to respond to the needs of different communities.”

In-person seating is limited at the lectures. The public is invited to join the event virtually.

Both lectures will be live-streamed on YouTube from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

Watch Live on YouTube.
