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 Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations), and Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
Dr. Takeuchi's scholarship has been centered around equity and 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 a transdisciplinary imagination toward social and environmental justice. Through these research activities, she hopes to shine light on traditionally unseen and hidden knowledge shared by (im)migrant and refugee learners of color and their families.
As a principal investigator, Dr. Takeuchi leads a number of transdisciplinary projects including https://www.soilcamp.ca/
