New faculty – Physical education and outdoor/land-based education

Ms. Jennifer MacDonald accepted the full-time, tenure-track position in Physical Education and Outdoor/Land-Based Education (July 1, 2022). Ms. MacDonald is nearing completion of her Ph.D. at the University of Calgary with an anticipated defense in the autumn. She holds a Master’s of Education from the University of Ottawa; a Bachelor of Education from the University of Otago, New Zealand; and a Bachelor of Physical Education (Honours) from Brock University. Ms. MacDonald’s research contributions broadly explore social change, ecological healing, and truth and reconciliation. As a researcher and teacher educator she is committed to collaborating with communities, generating new knowledge for planning and teaching in ways that approach place, teaching, learning, relations, wellness, narrative, and curriculum differently. At a time of ecological crisis, her research program provides increased consideration, discussion, and education to help renew co-existence between humans and the natural world while simultaneously contribute to restoring right relations between Indigenous and settler people on this shared land.
