Dr. Carmen Rodriguez de France

Carmen has been working in the field of education for 34 years. As a former schoolteacher, she understands the importance of developing and exploring approaches to teaching and learning as a tool to advance critical thinking.

Through her participation in a variety of community-based initiatives in schools, recreational centres, art galleries, and other spaces for learning, Carmen’s work with in-service and pre-service teachers focuses on creating awareness to better understand, appreciate, and learn from the histories and stories of the Indigenous people of Canada and other parts of the world.

Carmen’s research is always motivated by her own interest to be a life-long learner and promote diversity and social justice. Consequently, her work involves teaching students and other stakeholders within educational settings.

 Carmen will co-deliver the workshop, Wellness in a Time of Change and Transition: Nature Healing at the 2021 Fall Education Conference on Wednesday, October 20.
