Roselynn is a third year PhD student in the Department of Educational Studies (EDST). Her doctoral research explores the role of arts-based approaches and trans-cultural art exchanges in creating spaces for pre-service teachers in Canada and Nepal to explore existential conversations in teacher education programs. Her work is informed by her previous work as an educator in Canada and Nepal, including facilitating trans-national art exchanges between children; experiences that supported existential reflections about what it means to be a teacher and to relate to others in our shared world.
Her research interests include: pre-service teacher education, existential education, arts-based educational research, and comparative and international education.
Roselynn holds a Master of Arts (MA) in Society Culture and Politics in Education from EDST and a Bachelor of Education (BEd) in Elementary Curriculum from the University of Victoria. Roselynn teaches in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program at Vancouver Community College as well as mentors practicum students in Early Childhood Education at Douglas College. She also works at the UBC Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology.
