Miwa A. Takeuchi

Associate Professor, Learning Sciences, University of Calgary

Dr. Miwa A. Takeuchi is Associate Professor in the Learning Sciences, at the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary, which is located on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta that includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), as well as the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda. The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.

Dr. Takeuchi's scholarship has been centered around equity and social justice in mathematics education and STEM education more broadly. Working collaboratively with young learners, teachers, community activists, and families, She aims to co-design the learning environments that can leverage learners' embodied and emplaced disciplinary experiences into transdisciplinary imagination toward social and environmental justice. Through these research activities, Dr. Takeuchi hopes to shine light on traditionally unseen and hidden knowledge shared by (im)migrant and refugee learners of color and their families.
