Patricia Danyluk grew up in northern Manitoba where she spent the early part of her career working with remote First Nations and Métis communities. Dr. Danyluk joined the Werklund School of Education in 2014 after working at Laurentian University’s School of Education for 10 years. She completed her PhD at Laurentian University, her master’s in Adult Education at St. Francis Xavier and her B.Ed. at Nipissing University. Patricia is currently the Director of Field Experience for the Community Based Bachelor of Education at Werklund. Prior to this, she worked as a Teacher, College Professor, Human Resources Consultant, and a Manager for the Manitoba Government. Dr. Danyluk’s research focuses on student teacher development specifically as it relates to the practicum. She has travelled throughout northern Canada to gather the stories of new teachers in remote, rural and Indigenous schools, and she now broadens her research in this specialized area to that of reconciliatory pedagogy.
