My name is Tathali Urueta-Ortiz and I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Curriculum & Pedagogy at the University of British Columbia campus Vancouver.
I hold a BSc from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and a MA in Science Education from UBC.
Since I was a kid I have been always interested in the natural world. During my childhood I attended alternative Mexican schools that provided me with learning experiences that inspired me to learn! I am an avid learner, and science mesmerize me. Through my teaching I share my knowledge and passion about science and education.
Science Education is and excellent field to bring together my academic passions. Also I am interested in both formal and informal places were we learn. I worked as a Research Assistant in the Intergenerational Landed Learning Project at UBC Farm. The experiences that I had in that project have been an important part of my research.
More to come…
