Grad student recipient of the APEG Saskatchewan Award

Graduate student Megan Moore is the recipient of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Saskatchewan (APEG) 2020 Friends of the Profession Award.

“The Friend of the Professions Award was created in 2013 to recognize exceptional achievements or unique contributions by a non-member in the promotion of the professions in Saskatchewan.

Moore is the Program Coordinator for the Educating Youth in Engineering and Science (EYES) Program at the University of Regina. EYES operates through the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences and reaches more than 30,000 youth in Saskatchewan each year.

Megan began working with EYES in September 2016, but has been working with youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programming since May 2013 with Destination Exploration at the University of Lethbridge. Megan graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts and Science in Biological Science and Psychology.

She currently is studying for a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Regina. Megan has always had a passion for STEM outreach and education. She volunteered with Let’s Talk Science and the Canada Wide Science Fair while she was attending the University of Lethbridge.

Megan is always in search of innovative ways to inspire youth to love STEM as much as she does. There is nothing more exciting for Megan then getting to experience the “a-ha” moment when a youth experiences the wonder of STEM.

Having grown up in a small rural community, Megan is passionate about equitable access for all youth regardless of socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, disability or any non-traditional status that may prevent youth from seeing themselves in STEM. Megan works tirelessly to build safe spaces for youth and continues to disrupt established STEM spaces. She truly believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to be great and that it is her duty to ensure that EYES is accessible for everyone.” (Source:

IPHRC/SCPOR funding renewed

PhD Candidate (Education Psychology) Shana Cardinal has been renewed as recipient of an Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC) / Saskatchewan Centre for Patient Oriented Research (SCPOR) Research Award in the amount of $30,000 for her doctoral research, which Cardinal says involves, “analyzing the contexts and frameworks through which Indigenous children and youth mental health may be viewed, with particular emphasis on the impacts of social determinants and cultural assumptions.”  Through her research, Cardinal says she “hopes to determine ways in which we can better support Indigenous students as they progress through Pre-K to 12 education system.”

The IPHRC/SCPOR grant has facilitated Cardinal’s ability to complete coursework requirements for her PhD program and to begin a review of the literature by locating, assembling, and reviewing resources to support her doctoral research.  The grant has given Cardinal, “numerous educational and mentorship opportunities specifically related to Indigenous research methodologies and practices,” she says.

The IPHRC/SCPOR Trainee program has facilitated the growth of Cardinal’s professional networks. These networks have “broadened my perspective and expanded my thinking about my research questions within the context of the mental health of Indigenous children and youth,” says Cardinal.


Institutional racism and the implications for faculties of education

On September 30, (#OrangeShirtDay) Dr. Jerome Cranston (#UREdu Dean and Professor) was keynote lecturer for the University of Manitoba’s Distinguished Lecturer Virtual Series.  Cranston addressed how amid the current period of racial reckoning, those responsible for teacher preparation, preservice and in-service education, need to confront and (re)consider how higher education has reified systemic racism.

Successful defence

Dr. Emily Ashton has successfully completed her PhD from the University of Victoria. Dr. Ashton’s research explores how the cultural connections of childhood are being rewritten under conditions of ecological destruction and political uncertainty. Her research seeks to better understand how child figures of public and popular culture entangle with early childhood imaginaries to create particular worlds.
